Man allegedly molested relatives for years

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - A man allegedly responsible for sexually molesting two juvenile girls has been arrested.

The Sierra Vista Police Department launched an investigation after receiving a report on June 10 that Michael Sanchez, 28, had been sexually molesting his underaged relatives.

Investigators determined that Sanchez sexually assaulted the two girls multiple times over the course of five years.

Reports show that many of the incidents occurred in Sierra Vista but investigators say some may have taken place on Fort Huachuca and in more states on other military bases.

Sanchez was booked into the Cochise County Jail on two counts of continual sexual abuse of a child. He is being held without bond.

The Sierra Vista Police Department and the Army Criminal Investigation Division continue working on the investigation.
