MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WBTW) - An 81-year-old Myrtle Beach man was arrested after a girl claimed she was sexually assaulted during a sleep over.

According to an Horry County police report, the father of the 7-year-old victim told officers that his daughter spent the night at a friend's house and was touched by Cyril Dharmadasa inappropriately on June 6.

The victim told police that while she and her friend were sitting on the guest bed, Dharmadasa entered the room and sat down next to her. She stated that he then placed his hand down her shirt and then placed his hand down her pants.

Later, while they were watching TV, Dharmadasa entered the room and told his daughters it was time to take a bath, the report said.

Once they left, she said Dharmadasa sat down next to her and began trying to kiss her and placed his hand inside her pants again.

Dharmadasa was arrested Wednesday and charged with criminal sexual conduct with a child under 11.

He is currently being held at the J Reuben Long Detention Center.
