HORRY COUNTY, SC (WMBF) - A Galivants Ferry man is spending time behind bars following allegations that he inappropriately touched a minor.

Those allegations were filed in an Horry County Police report by the mother of the young victim who noticed her strange behavior during bath time. When questioned, the young child admitted that at least one month before, when spending the night at a friend's home, she was told to sleep in 26-year-old Benjamin Cook's bed.

When she woke up, the report states Cook was pulling her pants off and touching her inappropriately. The young victim claims she left the room but had been afraid to mention what happened.

Cook was booked into J. Reuben Long Detention Center on Tuesday, April 30 and charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor. His bond has not been set.
