BULLHEAD CITY — Bullhead City police have arrested a man accused of inappropriately touching his 8-year-old stepdaughter.

Ciprano Santo Fass, 32, was booked Wednesday on suspicion of molestation of a child.

Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt said the Arizona Department of Child Safety had received an anonymous sexual abuse tip. Police then contacted Fass at a residence in the 2000 block of Buccaneer Drive.

Investigators have determined that the inappropriate touching allegedly occurred on several occasions, Fromelt said.

DCS personnel took custody of the girl.

Fass was taken to the Mohave County Jail in Kingman.

He was being held without bond. No information on a court appearance was available Thursday.
