Man charged with sexually abusing girl in Clearwater

CLEARWATER — Authorities have arrested a 34-year-old man they say sexually battered a young girl.

Pinellas Sheriff's deputies began investigating Anthony M. Grubbs of 14954 56th St. N three weeks ago after the girl told her father she had been molested.

The girl said the abuse happened at Grubb's home from the time she was 5 until when she was 8 years old. Grubbs had access to the girl through a family member, officials said.

Grubbs turned himself in at the Pinellas County Jail on Friday. He was arrested on a charge of sexual battery on a child under 12 years old. Bail was not set late Friday night.

Authorities said they don't believe Grubbs, a carpet installer and welder, had access to any other children, but would like to speak to anyone with more information. Detective Brian Briguglio can be reached at (727) 582-6200.
