Odessa man accused of grabbing, molesting 6-year-old girl

ODESSA – A 46-year-old man is accused of grabbing a 6-year-old girl off her bicycle and molesting her.

Rodney "Red" Anderson was standing outside his house at 14337 Tifton Lane on Thursday afternoon when the girl came riding by, a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report states. He asked her if she wanted to watch a movie with him. When she declined, the report states, Anderson grabbed the little girl's left arm, moved her clothing and touched her sexually, all outside his house.

The girl recounted the incident to deputies, who arrested Anderson early Friday morning on a charge of lewd and lascivious molestation on a victim under 12. He remained in the Land O'Lakes jail Monday in lieu of $500,000 bail.
