Man accused of sexually assaulting 12-year-old girl

WFLA - PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) — A 12-year-old girl in Florida told detectives she woke up one night to a man sexually assaulting her in her bedroom.

Daniel J. Flowers, 37, was arrested Thursday in connection to the incident.

The victim, who tested positive for a sexually transmitted disease said Flowers had removed her clothes, had his pants down and was touching her inappropriately with his genitals.

After the assault, Flowers pulled up his pants and left the room, according to the victim.

The girl contracted trichamonis, which doctors say can only be transmitted through sexual contact, primarily vaginal penetration or contact.

Flowers lived with the victim, her mother and her sisters in the house where the incident occurred.

He was taken into custody and faces a sexual battery charge.
