CLARK COUNTY, Ind. (WHAS11) – Clark County, Indiana prosecutors say it’s one of the strangest child molestation investigations they’ve had.

Jeremy Mull, Clark County’s Deputy Prosecutor, says a 63-year-old man entered a Charlestown, Indiana home and had unlawful contact with a 12-year-old minor.

“He proceeded to remove her shoes and socks and began sucking on her toes in what we believe was a sexual manner,” Mull said.

Court records say Daniel Brackin showed up to the home back in March to track down the granddaughter of his neighbors.

“He went to that location with some candy, chocolate milk, waited until she got off the school bus and was alone, knocked on the door made his way into the house,” Mull said.

Authorities say Brackin lives in Scottsburg and came to Clark County to initiate contact with the minor.

Charges were filed against Bracken and turned himself into authorities Monday afternoon.

Those living in the neighborhood where the incident happened say they were outraged by the details.

“For someone to come in someone's house like that just to do that is pretty creepy and then get charged with child molestation – especially in this neighborhood where nothing like that really happens here,” a neighbor said.

Brackin is expected to be arraigned on Tuesday and the victim was not injured in any other way.
