KINGMAN - A 48-year-old Kingman man was arrested Tuesday on two counts of child molestation.

Danny Ray Couch is also charged with two counts of sexual misconduct with a minor. Kingman Police Detectives learned of the allegations against Couch last week, after police were contacted by the mother of a 9-year-old girl.

Couch was baby sitting the girl when the alleged molestation took place. Sgt. Bob Fisk said the abuse occurred on two separate occasions within the last week.

Fisk said Couch was interviewed by detectives and admitted involvement, although Fisk would not elaborate.

"He gave us enough to build a good case against him," Fisk said.

During the course of their investigation, police found what they believe to be a second victim, who was abused several years ago and is now in her 20s.

Fisk said he is not sure if there are other victims.

Couch is not listed in the Department of Public Safety's sex offender database.
