Man Charged With Molesting Girl, 11

Times Staff and Wire Reports

A man arrested over the weekend on suspicion of fondling an 11-year-old girl was charged Tuesday with child molestation.

Dammian Martise Fletcher, 23, was taken into custody Sunday after the girl told police he had forced her into a women's restroom at an apartment complex on Peterson Place and fondled her.

In investigating the case, Costa Mesa officers were approached by two other girls, 14 and 15, who made similar allegations against Fletcher, police Lt. Dale Birney said.

Fletcher was charged with child molestation, lewd conduct with a juvenile and lewd conduct with a juvenile involving the use of force, Birney said.
