Benton City Man Booked For Child Molestation

A Benton City man is facing child molestation charges in connection with an incident that occurred last Thursday.

Police say the 13 year old victim told officers she met Luis Madrigal who drove her to a remote location then parked and sexually assaulted her.

Authorities say they were notified of what happened on Friday and went to talk with Madrigal at his home where he admitted to what happened.

Madrigal was booked into the Benton County Jail for second degree child molestation.
