On Thursday, Riley County police arrested 55-year old Rodney Richardson of 1343 Flinthills Place on charges of taking aggravated indecent liberties with a child.
The incident which led to the warrant involved an 11-year old girl with whom Richardson was familiar.
The incident occurred on August 6 of this year but wasn’t reported until August 9. Riley District Court granted the warrant on October 7.
Richardson remains confined in Riley County jail on a $25,000 bond.
