Kalahari Resort lifeguard accused of improperly touching young girl

SANDUSKY (WTOL) - Police in Erie County are investigating allegations of improper conduct by an employee at a local water park.

The sheriff's department says a lifeguard at Kalahari Resort has been accused of improperly touching a 14-year-old girl who was at the resort with her church group.

The 20-year-old was reportedly walking with the girl in the parking lot when he kissed her on the cheek and groped her.

No charges have been filed, but the allegations have parents concerned.

"With kids of my own, that would concern me. We will have to see what the facts are. Hopefully they are handling it in the appropriate way," said visitor Rick Gillespie of Jackson, Mich.

So far the resort has not commented on the investigation.
