SAN ANTONIO -

A 29-year-old man is accused of stealing jewelry off a 6-year-old girl during a hug.

An arrest warrant affidavit stated that the girl's grandmother told San Antonio police in January that she saw John Meisenhelder hugging the child and taking a gold chain with a gold angel charm off her neck.

The woman told police she also heard him tell the girl not to tell her grandmother about it.

The affidavit stated that the witness said she looked for the jewelry later but couldn't find it, and also questioned Meisenhelder, who denied stealing it.

The affidavit does not mention his relationship to the girl and her family. Police arrested Meisenhelder Monday on a charge of theft.
