Guam - The Guam Police Department's Internal Affairs Division is investigating the arrest of another police officer.  According to Auxiliary Services Division Lieutenant Joe Carbullido, agents with the Criminal Investigation Division on Thursday arrested Police Officer III Kenneth JC Balajadia on three counts of 2nd degree Criminal Sexual Conduct, and three counts of Child Abuse and Family Violence.

The arrest came after CID agents followed up on information they received from Child Protective Services. 

According to the magistrate's complaint, he's accused of inappropriately touching an 11-year-old female, who is known to him, on several occasions.  When questioned about the allegations, the officer denied touching the minor and said he jokes and admitted to making fun of his minors' private parts.
