TAMPA — A man was arrested Wednesday and charged with molesting and raping his ex-girlfriend's 12-year-old daughter.
Nacenure Neloms, 51, of Tampa, began molesting the girl at the beginning of 2011, Tampa police said. Her mother confronted Neloms after the girl told her about the abuse. He assured her he would not touch the girl again, an arrest report shows.
But the abuse continued two more times, police said. On June 12, Neloms entered the girl's room and raped her, police said.
Neloms faces sexual battery and lewd and lascivious molestation charges. He was booked into the Hillsborough County jail and held without bail.
