Kin Phonasa, 48, was arrested Monday, April 2, on suspicion of sexually molesting a child with autism.

According to a Maricopa Police probable cause statement, the child reported to police that over the spring break he “did sexual stuff” to her.

After a forensic medical exam at the San Tan Family Advocacy Center, the child alleged he had been molesting her since she was 4 or 5 years old and that it “still happens,” the report states.

Police arrested Phonasa the following day at his residence in Maricopa.

According to the police probable case statement, Phonasa admitted having sexual relations with the girl during an interview with police.

He was booked into the Pinal County Jail where he remains pending the posting of a $250,000 bond. He is charged with one count of molestation of a minor and one count of sexual conduct with a minor.
