Girl molested after accepting ride on ATV, Osceola County deputies say
A 47-year-old man was arrested in Osceola County on suspicion of molesting a 13-year-old girl after offering a ride home on an ATV.
Brian Keith Shaw was arrested Sunday on three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation and one count of battery.
The Osceola County Sheriff's Office said deputies began an investigation on Sunday after being called to Kenansville. Deputies said the girl told them she was walking home from a friend's house when Shaw approached her driving a four-wheeler.
Shaw asked the girl if she wanted a ride home and she accepted, deputies said. On the way to her house, Shaw pulled over into a wooded area and began inappropriately touching and trying to kiss her, the Sheriff's Office said.
The girl walked home and told her mother, who called law enforcement.
Deputies said Shaw did not cooperate with the investigation.
Shaw was arrested and booked into the Osceola County Jail.
