A 28-year-old man has been charged with molesting a girl, who disclosed the alleged incident to police years later, police said.

Marlon Ivan Sarat-Vasquez was arrested Friday and charged with aggravated child molestation and aggravated sexual battery.

Flowery Branch Police Investigator Robin Kemp said the girl was between 9 and 10 years old at the time of the alleged acts.

Sarat-Vasquez was a family friend, Kemp said in a news release.

The victim is now 12 years old, Kemp said.

“(Until) recently, she had not disclosed what had happened to her,” the investigator said.

Sarat-Vasquez was booked in to the Hall County Jail, where he remains.
