TAMPA, FL — Tampa Police say they have arrested a school security guard for sexually battering a 6-year-old student.
Police arrested Malcolm Curtis Tillman, 22, of North 13th Street, Tampa, on Wednesday, Jan. 23, after DNA evidence implicated him in the sexual battery of a 6-year-old at Booker T. Washington Elementary School.
Police say the battery took place on Jan. 10. Tillman, who was stationed at the elementary school, is accused of getting the girl alone in a classroom and assaulting her.
Tillman denied the allegation, but admitted that he was alone with the child in a classroom. However, Tampa Police said physical evidence taken from the classroom support the victim’s account.
