A 30-year-old man has been arrested for molesting and attempting to kidnap a 3-year-old girl from her grandmother's fenced in front yard.
Sgt. Steve Martos with the Phoenix Police Department said the 3-year-old and her 1-year-old sibling were playing outside about 5 p.m. Thursday while the grandmother was on the phone and watching from inside her home.
Martos said the grandmother saw the suspect grab and inappropriately touch the 3-year-old and the grandmother went outside to confront the suspect who ran off.
Officers were in the area and quickly arrested Raul Isaac Molina who was interviewed and admitted to the crime, according to police.
He was booked on children molestation, attempted kidnapping and criminal trespassing charges.
