CUMBERLAND — A city man who is a registered sex offender was arrested Tuesday evening by the C3I Unit in connection with alleged sex offenses he committed against a 11-year-old girl while she was in his care.
Robert Lee Riggleman Sr., 67, was served a warrant charging him with sexual abuse of a minor, third-degree sex offense, sexual solicitation of a minor, second-degree assault and child abuse.
Following his arrest, Riggleman was jailed at the Allegany County Detention Center in lieu of $50,000 bond.
The charges stemmed from a joint investigation by Cumberland Police, Child Protective Services and C3I into allegations that Riggleman had been inappropriately touching the victim.
The alleged incident oc-curred early Tuesday and was reported to Cumberland Police by neighbors of the victim after the victim and her sister went there seeking assistance, police said.
