WARSAW, Ind. (WOWO) – New details have been released in the arrest of a former Rise’n Roll manager.
Vincent Banks, 56, was arrested Tuesday on a preliminary charge of child molestation.
In court documents released by the Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office Thursday, Banks is accused of performing sexual acts on a child under the age of fourteen in 2009. He is also accused of knowingly inducing a child to perform sexual acts on either themselves or on another child also under the age of fourteen.
The probable cause affidavit states the following:
“Child Protective Services spoke with [the alleged victim] who advised as a young girl she liked to masturbate. That Vincent Banks would talk to her about the masturbation. Vincent Banks began watching her masturbate and had her touch his penis. Vincent Banks and she would masturbate together, and he would put his hand on her hand to help her masturbate. She advised this occurred for approximately two years.”
Banks admitted to police that the above statement was correct, and that the victim was five or six years of age during that time.
