A man who was babysitting a four year old relative is accused of touching the girl inappropriately.
Onslow County deputies have charged Kevin Allen with first degree statutory sexual offense, indecent liberties with a child and sexual battery.
Deputies say it happened last summer when Allen agreed to babysit the young girl at his Jacksonville home. They say the victim was sleeping and was awakened by Allen touching her inappropriately.
The 29-year-old man is being held on a $150,000 secured bond.
