LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A Lafayette man is under arrest for multiple charges of child molestation. Adam Jones, 33, was booked into the Tippecanoe County Jail Thursday night.

However, prosecutors say the investigation has been in the works since September 2018. He's accused of touching four girls inappropriately on multiple occasions.

At least two of the girls were younger than 12 at the time. In some cases, the victims told investigators they were sleeping and woke up to Jones touching them.
