KINGMAN - A Kingman man was arrested on suspicion of two felony counts of child molestation.

Last week, Mohave County Sheriff's deputies responded to a sex offense call in the 3600 block of Neal Avenue and contacted a woman.

The woman said a neighbor inappropriately touched her 6-year-old daughter and her boyfriends' 7-year-old daughter. Further investigations determined the neighbor to be Peter Ballinger, 45, a registered sex offender in Mohave County.

At 2:15 p.m. on Tuesday, MCSO detectives took Ballinger into custody after he was interviewed at the Mohave County Sheriff's Office. Ballinger was booked into the Mohave County Jail without incident.
