A Grove City man accused of molesting a child is scheduled to appear in Mercer County Common Pleas Court next week.

Joseph Padilla-Vargas faces charges of corruption of minors and indecent assault of a person under 13.

Grove City Police say the arrest stems from an investigation that began in September when they received information from Children and Youth Services that a juvenile female had possibly been molested by a man.

Padilla-Vargas is currently free from jail on $25,000 bond.
