A man was arrested for molesting a young girl.

25-year-old Delio Vasquez-Martinez of Chicago, Illinois, is facing charges of aggravated criminal sexual abuse.

He is being held on $750,000 bail after police said that he admitted he touching the private parts of the girl several times, when she was between 11 and 13 years old.

Vasquez-Martinez of the 400 block of West Touhy Avenue, was charged with two counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse, according to court documents.

Vasquez-Martinez allegedly touched the private parts of the girl over and under her clothes several times.

According to Cook County Assistant State Attorney Robert Mack, Vasquez-Martinez said that he touched the young girl because “she was attractive, cute and skinny.”

The girl, who is friends with a relative of the suspect, finally told family members about the incident and the authorities were contacted.

Mack said that Vasquez-Martinez admitted to touching the private parts of the girl despite knowing that it was wrong.

Vasquez-Martinez reportedly also has a pending charge of disorderly conduct in DuPage County, where he was accused stopping next to a 13-year-old girl and offering her a ride. The girl refused and told her mother about the incident.

Later that month, he allegedly approached the same girl and said “you had to not be afraid of me. I just want to give you a ride,” said Mack.

The girl told her mother about the second incident, and the police were called. Vasquez-Martinez was arrested and allegedly admitted to trying to give the child a ride “because it was cold outside,” according to Mack.
