Police: RI Man Molested 10-Year-Old

Police have arrested a Rhode Island man accused of molesting a 10-year-old.

Robert Barboza, 46, of Cranston, was captured Friday in Providence.

The victim and the suspect knew each other, according to Cranston Police.

The department's special victims unit led the investigation after the child told police and the Department of Children, Youth and Families about the abuse.

Barboza is expected to be arraigned at some point in the future. It was not immediately clear if he had an attorney.
