From the Mouth of Babes – ‘He touched my middle!’

February 23, 2012

LONGMONT, CO – Police arrested Dustin Kaminski, a 42-year-old man, February 19, 2012, on suspicion of sexually assaulting a 4-year-old girl. She told more than one adult that the man touched her “middle.”

Detective Tori Bellah said it was the second time the girl told an adult because she apparently made a similar statement to the mother’s roommate, but the man told police that he simply did not understand what the girl was telling him.

Bellah said that investigators conducted aforensic interview with the girl, who repeated her account of a time on the couch with Kaminski. The child demonstrated actions that indicated that he touched her sexually while she was lying with her back against his chest and belly. She reported that she felt him moving behind her, but was unable to give more details. She said the touching stopped when her mother returned home from an errand.

Kaminski remained in the Boulder County Jail on February 22, with his bond set at $25,000.

Children don’t always tell about assaults or grooming. This girl told, and fortunately told again. Kaminski was living in her home. What if, after the first telling, she received the impression that it was no big deal to have a man touch her middle? What if she had not told again?
