INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A 20-year-old Indianapolis man has been arrested on charges alleging that he fondled a 4-year-old girl at a day-care center where he works.

Ali Al-Awadi was arrested Friday on a preliminary child molestation charge. He remained held Saturday at the Marion County Jail.

An Indianapolis police report says Al-Award is a staff member at the Children’s Choice Learning Center at St. Vincent’s Hospital Center, where the molestation allegedly occurred Friday.

Police spokesman Sgt. Kendale Adams tells The Indianapolis Star (http://indy.st/1twq1VC ) the girl was examined at the hospital after telling one of her parents about the incident.

Adams says the girl then “was able to tell police what happened.”

A hospital statement says the suspect has been suspended. He’s employed by the day-care center, which provides child-care services for hospital employees.

For fellow Gary native CJ Williams, being a Michael Jackson tribute artist is not about mimicking the spins and splits. It's about paying homage to the King of Pop.  Williams, who took third place at a recent talent contest in Gary coinciding with the anniversary of Jackson's birthday, has spent 12 years as an impersonator.  He has performed in Los Angeles, Philadelphia and Ohio and has plans to take his show farther.  (AP Photo/The Times, Jonathan Miano )  MANDATORY CREDIT; CHICAGO LOCALS OUT;  GARY OUT

Hood lives with three dumped dogs in a dilapidated 1982 Chevrolet Rockwood recreational vehicle that’s traveled 81,000 miles and has an expired 2008 license plate on the back.  That RV, Hood’s home, may have finally found a permanent parking space thanks to kindness bestowed upon him by strangers , including a local accountant, a grocery store owner and a property owner and several county officials who asked to go unnamed who were intent on making sure the man can live his simple life without fear of being run off.
