GREENFIELD, Ind.—A Greenfield man was arrested after police said a middle school student reported she had been molested over a period of at least five years.

Clifford Andrew Spoon, 33, was charged with five counts of child molesting.

Police said the girl, now in her early teens, told a school official last week that Spoon began touching her inappropriately since she was 7 or 8 years old.

According to court documents, the girl told authorities she reported the abuse to her mother years ago.  However, the girl’s mother denied knowing about the alleged molesting.

During an interview with police, Spoon denied the allegations.

Spoon was transported to the Hancock County Jail late Wednesday on a $25,000 bond.
