A Union City man was arrested Monday on a sex-related offense stemming from alleged inappropriate contact with a child over a period of several years.
Buddy Elwood Stroud, 63, of 1615 North Clover St., Union City, was arrested at 10:27 a.m. Monday and charged with two counts of aggravated sexual battery, according to a Union City Police Department report.
The charges were levied in connection with alleged inappropriate contact with a child between Aug. 2, 2001, and April 26, 2004, and between March 14, 2007, and July 31, 2009, at his home.
The victim told police she would be awakened during overnight visits by Stroud touching her crotch area through her clothing. She indicated the contact did not occur on every visit to the home, but on most visits from the time she was about 7 years old, police reported.
The alleged incident was recently reported to police, prompting an investigation.
