Guam - 29-year-old Kaniam Santos was arrested on criminal sexual conduct charges after he allegedly sexually assaulted an 8-year-old girl. A magistrate's complaint states the victim was sitting outside her home when Santos approached her and allegedly pulled down her pants and placed his hands over her genitals.

Court documents state the victim began to cry, and her uncle came out, and chased Santos away. Documents also state Santos had been drinking at the home, and that she only cried after he took a marker away from her.

Santos claims that's when the victim began to cry and he felt the need to hug her. He was placed behind bars for 2nd degree criminal sexual conduct as a 1st degree felony.
