The Ennore All Women Police have arrested a 41-year-old man for sexually abusing a 10-year-old girl in the Madhavaram station limits on Monday.

A senior police official said a case was filed at the Ennore All Women police station by the parents of the 10-year-old girl about a private security guard making sexual advances and verbally abusing her daily when the victim used to play outside the house.

Based on the complaint, a case was registered and the police team, on inquiry, found that V. Ramesh, a resident of Shanmugapuram in Thiruvottiyur, was trying to sexually harass the girl. The accused was produced before a judicial magistrate and sent to prison.
