Police have charged Victor Chaves Santay, 42, with rape of a child.
An investigator was contacted by a Children's Services caseworker about a possible rape after an eight-year-old girl was admitted to the hospital with lesions to her private area that were discovered to be herpes.
The girl said Santay had kissed her on the mouth and licked her private area on a number of occasions.
The girl drew a picture of her and Santay with arrows pointing from Santay's mouth to her mouth and her private area.
Police said Santay, who often kept the girl alone, at first denied touching her, then later admitted kissing her on the mouth and neck.
