Donte Walker, 18, Chicago, was charged April 13 with two counts of lascivious acts with a child.

According to a police report, the alleged victim's mother told officials that her 7-year-old daughter told her Walker was "a bad person." The mother said when she asked her daughter why, she said Walker allegedly touched her private parts with his hand and it hurt.

The daughter also told her mother Walker allegedly got on top of her 5-year-old sister.

Iowa City police Sgt. Denise Brotherton said Walker was arrested in Illinois, but he has not yet been transported to the Johnson County Jail.
