Posted: Updated:

Deputies arrested a 47-year-old man on Thursday after he grabbed a young girl's butt while playing a game with her at a Lehigh Acres church.

The girl told deputies that John Allen put his hand on her thigh and butt while he gave her a piggyback ride during a frisbee game. Then later during a game called "Manhunt," the girl said Allen touched her inappropriately while helping her down from a storage container.

Allen is a registered sex offender in Florida. He faces charges for attempted sexual battery and aggravated battery.
