Thomasville, GA- A 20 year-old man is behind bars accused of sexually molesting a 7 year-old girl.

Thomas County Sheriff's Deputies have charged Francisco Antonio Rangel with aggravated child molestation, rape, and enticing a child for indecent purposes.

According to investigators, the 7 year-old girl told family members she was molested by Rangel.

They say Rangel knew the child prior to the assault.

"Mr. Rangel was interviewed by the Sheriff's Office investigators and at that time he gave a partial admission to the molestation and attempted rape," said Lt. Tim Watkins, lead investigator with the Thomas County Sheriff's Office.

Rangel was denied bond on Wednesday and will remain in the Thomas County Jail.
