Seymour man arrested on charge of felony child molesting

SEYMOUR — Indiana State Police have arrested a Seymour man on a felony child molesting charge after investigating an incident in rural Jackson County.

On Monday, state police arrested Reynaldo E. Reyes-Perdomo, 30, Seymour, at a Seymour home. He was taken into custody without incident.

On Sunday, Seymour police began investigating a child molesting complaint and referred it to the Indiana State Police because the offense occurred outside the city limits, said Sgt. Stephen Wheeles, Indiana State Police spokesman.

Detective Andrew Mitchell, Indiana State Police-Versailles, conducted the investigation with the assistance of the Seymour Police Department, Indiana Department of Child Services, and the Indiana Child Advocacy Center.

Through the investigation, it was determined that Reyes-Perdomo took a 13-year-old female to a rural location near State Road 11 and I-65 in northern Jackson County and engaged in sexual contact with the juvenile. A second incident was reported to have occurred on a different date at a Seymour residence involving the same victim.

Reyes-Perdomo was transported to the Jackson County Jail where he was initially incarcerated on a level one felony count of Child Molesting, pending his initial appearance in the Jackson County Circuit Court.
