Marion Co. man accused of inappropriately touching 11-year-old girl

Marion Co., Fla. (WCJB) — A resident of Marion County was arrested Saturday for molesting an 11-year-old girl last June.

On June 5, 2017, deputies say Aundra Boykins inappropriately touched the girl while she was sleeping. According to a report, Boykins then told the girl not to say anything and offered her a roll of money from his pocket. According to deputies, Boykins later denied touching the girl, but said if he did do it, he was drunk and the act was unintentional.

After deputies interviewed those involved, they tried to find Boykins, but they learned he possible fled the state.

Deputies arrested him Saturday and charged him with molestation of a child less than 12 years old.
