Crete rocked by 3rd child abuse case in a month

In the third alleged child molestation case to rock Crete in a month, a 62-year-old man was arrested on Monday on charges of sexually abusing the 11-year-old daughter of friends during a New Year?s Eve party in Iraklio.

The unnamed suspect, a guest of the girl?s family, claims he entered the child?s room to see if she was tucked into bed.

Her parents, however, called the police and accused him of molesting her.
