DOVER, Del. (AP) - Delaware State Police have arrested a man who they say inappropriately touched a 9-year-old girl he helped on and off a horse for a pony ride.

The agency tells local media outlets that the girl was at Fifer Orchards near Dover with her mother on Oct. 29. Troopers say the child took a pony ride. Investigators say after the ride, another woman told the child’s mother that the man who helped the girl on and off the pony had inappropriately touched the child.

Authorities arrested 33-year-old John Blackburn of Houston, Delaware. Police charged Blackburn, who is a high-risk sex offender, with unlawful sexual contact with a child and failure to re-register as a sex offender.
