A Columbus man has been charged with child molesting after police said he inappropriately touched a teenage girl.
Dustin Tyler Dykes, 24, was arrested Wednesday on a warrant for one charge of child molesting.
The girl’s mother called police after finding Facebook messages on her phone between the girl and Dykes that referred to sexual activities, according to a police report. Police spoke to the girl, who said that Dykes touched her inappropriately when they were going to get ice cream, according to a police report.
Dykes told police he did not touch the girl and that he did not send the text messages.
Dykes, 4326 Bunting Lane, was taken to the Johnson County jail and released on $20,000 bond.
