A local man has been accused of inappropriately touching a 7-year-old.

Marvin Ramos, 31, was charged on Oct. 9 with second-degree sexual abuse.

According to the Iowa City police, on July 10, 2013, the police received a report of a sexual assault on a child.

The victim’s mother stated that her 7-year-old daughter told her she was touched on her private area by her uncle, who was watching her at her grandmother’s residence.

A medical examination at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics showed the victim did have abrasions on her private area, the complaint said. Interviews with the family members of the child showed that the defendant was left in supervisory position with the child at the time of the alleged assault, the complaint said.

Second-degree sexual assault is a Class-B felony.
