ONALASKA, TX (KTRE) - Officers with the Onalaska Police Department arrested a 39-year-old man Saturday for allegedly touching a high school-age girl inappropriately on Sept. 20 and back in August.

Michael Anthony Kyle, of Onalaska, is still being held in the Polk County Jail on three second-degree felony charges of indecency with a child under the age of 17. Collectively, his bail has been set at $150,000.

According to the arrest warrants, an Onalaska Police officer received a phone call from the mother of one of the victim's friends. The mother explained to the police that the victim and her daughter had been at church together when the victim confided in her friend about how Kyle had touched her inappropriately and told her not to tell anyone.

At that point, the police officer went to Onalaska High School and met with the victim, who gave him a statement. The girl told the officer that Kyle had touched her inappropriately after school on Sept. 20. The victim also told police that Kyle also touched her inappropriately and forced her to touch his genitalia back in August.
