A family is angry after they were betrayed and their daughter was violated by a teenager they trusted.
The 18-year-old Arizona man, is in jail after admitting to sexually assaulting the 4-year-old girl multiple times.
Dalton Cole, of San Tan Valley, was arrested on Tuesday, after admitting to authorities that he committed sexual acts with the girl more than once, officials said.
The incident came to light after Child Protective Services received an anonymous tip.
Someone called Child Protective Services and told then that Cole had been sexually assaulting his friends’ daughter.
Investigators spoke with the young girl and determined that there has been inappropriate conduct between her and Cole, at least two times in the last six months.
Police confronted Cole with the allegations and they said that he admitted depraved acts.
Cole was charged with sexual misconduct with a minor and committing a dangerous crime against a child.
He is being held without bail.
