A Chico man has been arrested on child molestation charges for crimes he allegedly committed more than five years ago.
Michael Manning, 54, was arrested by Chico police last Thursday, following an investigation into the 2008 and 2009 molestation of child who was 12 to 14 years old at the time.
Police, along with Homeland Security Agents served a search warrant as part of the case Thursday and found evidence corroborating the victim’s account.
Manning was taken into custody and has been booked into the Butte County Jail on suspicion of child molestation.
