A South Side man is accused of fondling a 5-year-old, telling the child it was a game.
Raul Flores, 56, was arrested Thursday on a charge of indecency with a child.
The allegations are spelled out in an arrest warrant affidavit, which said that Flores is a friend of the 5-year-old boy’s family.
According to the affidavit, the boy’s mother was cooking in the kitchen Wednesday when she heard her son cry out in another room, saying that he “didn’t want to play that game anymore.”
The mother told police she went to investigate what was going on and found her son in a bedroom, with his pants pulled down, and Flores fondling the boy.
The affidavit said Flores jumped up, yelled at the child and pushed him off the bed.
The woman immediately removed her son from the home, then reported the incident Thursday, the affidavit stated. Flores was booked into jail with bond set at $75,000.
