KEY WEST, Fla. -

A former Key West police officer is accused of molesting a girl for more than a year.

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement said Henry Arroyo Jr., 41, turned himself in on lewd and lascivious molestation charges Monday morning.

According to the FDLE report, Arroyo sexually abused the girl when she was 10 years old and continued to do so for more than a year.

An investigation began in December after the girl, now 14, reported he had abused her.

According to the report, the girl claimed Arroyo would force her to touch his genitals.

Arroyo was being held at the Monroe County Detention Center on $100,000 bond.
