A south valley man is behind bars for allegedly groping a 6-year-old girl after she got off of a school bus.

The Tulare County Sheriff’s Office says a Deputy was patrolling in the area of Avenue 326 in Visalia when a good samaritan waved the officer down.

The samaritan told the deputy that a man who had just run away had walked up to a 6-year-old girl right after she got off a school bus and touched and groped her.  The Deputy found the man and took him into custody.

Detectives have identified the man as Luis Roque, and they say he lives in the area where the alleged crime took place.  Roque is known to TCSO Deputies.

Roque was taken into custody and faces charges of lewd acts on a child.
