An 81-year-old Horry County man accused of fondling a 7-year-old girl last week is being held at J. Reuben Long Detention Center.
Cyril Dharmadasa is charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor under age 11.
The girl’s father called police about 6 p.m. June 6 when the child told them Dharmadasa had touched her while at his home, according to an incident report.
She told her parents Dharmadasa put his hand down her shirt and pants and later tried to kiss her, police said.
The girl was at the home for a sleepover with her friend.
