Jimenez was babysitting his daughter and the 12-year-old victim in his Brooklyn home over the summer when he allegedly groped and tried to kiss the girl, ABC News reports. The victim reported it and cops launched an investigation, authorities said.
Jimenez grabbed the child by the waist and “attempted to kiss (the victim) about the mouth,” according to court documents. Jimenez also grabbed the girl’s butt, prosecutors said.
Jimenez is charged with two counts of sex abuse, forcible touching and acting in a manner injurious to a child. Jimenez is a 13-year veteran of the NYPD. A Brooklyn Criminal Court judge ordered Jimenez released without bail on Friday night. Jiminez was suspended following his arrest.
