Las Cruces - Police arrested a man for groping a young girl and offering her, and another girl, cash to keep it quiet.
Fernando Ibarra, 53, is charged with two counts of criminal sexual contact of a minor and three counts of enticement of a child.
Ibarra is related to both girls.
On Monday, the 13-year-old girl’s parents contacted police and told officers that Ibarra made sexual advances toward their daughter sometime over the weekend.
Detectives learned that on at least two occasions Ibarra had sexual contact with a 12-year-old girl and offered both girls money if they exposed themselves and kept quiet about it.
Both girls ultimately refused to honor Ibarra’s requests.
