Daytona Beach, FL-A Daytona Beach woman’s grandchild was sexually molested by a homeless man she had allowed into her home. The grandmother told police she is in an on-again off-again relationship with 60-year-old Jerome McRae while her own boyfriend is in jail.
McRae was charged with lewd and lascivious molestation of a child younger than 12. He was being held Friday in the Volusia County Branch Jail on $20,000 bail.
The child’s grandmother had left the home to deposit money in her boyfriend’s jail account. When she returned home Thursday about 11:15 a.m. she found her granddaughter sitting on a couch holding a large kitchen knife.
The child was visibly upset and said McRae reached under her clothes and fondled her then asked her to keep it a secret. He also tried to remove her underwear.
McRae remains in jail.
