WINCHESTER, Va. - A Winchester man is facing a sexual battery charge after police say he molested an 11-year-old girl.

Court documents said Olegario Lopez-Santos went into his neighbor's apartment around 11 p.m., woke up the 11-year-old girl, and asked her if she wanted to come to his apartment to sleep. Documents said Lopez-Santos touched the girl in her private areas during the conversation.

It’s alleged the girl later screamed, alerting her mother who witnessed Lopez-Santos leave the apartment.

The criminal complaints states that the mother recognized the neighbor, and knew him as “Eulegario.”

Both the mother and her daughter later identified Lopez-Santos in a photographic lineup.

Police also charged him with breaking and entering.

He's due back in court in October.
