PROVO -- A man is under arrest after Provo Police say he repeatedly sexually abused a 15-year-old girl.

Investigators say the abuse took place over two months, from August to September. Capt. Cliff Argyle says 34-year-old German Rodriguez-Gomez would expose and touch himself.

"At the same time that he was doing this, he would touch the victim underneath her clothing," Argyle said.

Argyle says the girl was brave enough to eventually tell her church leaders about the abuse, and they called investigators.

Rodriguez-Gomez was booked on charges of third-degree felony unlawful sexual activity with a minor and misdemeanor sexual abuse of a minor, as well as on an immigration hold.
