FORT PIERCE, FL -- A 64-year-old man is behind bars, accused of raping a 10-year-old girl.

Norman Tim Grant was arrested Tuesday on felony charges of sexual battery on a child and lewd and lascivious molestation.

On Aug. 29, the girl's mother had picked her up from Grant's home at 7950 Hoeffner Lane in Fort Pierce when the girl began to cry, according to a St. Lucie County sheriff's report. The girl told her mother that Grant has touched her inappropriately, deputies say.

When questioned by investigators, the girl said Grant had kissed her and molested her, the report states, once in a swimming pool and twice while she was trying to sleep.

Grant was being held in the St. Lucie County jail this morning without bail.
