CLARK COUNTY, IN (WAVE) - A bizarre story has police and a prosecutor stunned. A man turned himself in to authorities, after a warrant was out for his arrest for a child molestation charge.  Daniel Brackin is accused of sucking on a 12-year-old girl's toes.  

Brackin turned himself into Charlestown Police on Monday. Court documents said that Brackin is a truck driver and police have been trying to speak with him since the allegations surfaced in March.

Police said he went after the 12-year-old girl that he briefly knew. According to court documents, Brackin went into the girl's Charlestown home in March without permission after she came home from school gave her some candy and chocolate milk. Police said Brackin started to look around the house and then took her shoes and socks off and began kissing and sucking on her toes.

Clark County Chief Deputy Prosecutor Jeremy Mull said thankfully the incident didn't go any further.

"Clearly any parent who comes home and finds out a 63-year-old man sucking on the feet of a 12-year-old daughter is going to be greatly troubled by this and it was appropriate to file criminal charges," said Mull.

Mull said Brackin went to great lengths to find the 12-year-old. Court documents reveal that he knew her from several months ago. The little girl stayed with her grandparents at their Scottsburg, Indiana home last winter. Brackin lived next door. The grandparents said they started to notice Brackin's odd behavior, he always asked about the 12-year-old, would have her sit on his lap and would wrestle with her touching her inappropriately.

The grandparents asked Brackin to leave her alone, but, "He obviously showed up at her residence with a plan in place with how he was going to talk his way in," said Mull.

Mull said luckily the interaction didn't go any further. Brackin told the 12-year-old not to tell anyone, she didn't listen and told her mother.

Court documents reveal Brackin may also have another victim, this one being only 4 years old. Brackin is being held on a $25,000 bond.
