A 60-year-old White man was arrested for allegedly urinating on a 5-year-old Black girl in an alley in Michigan, The Associated Press reports.

The young child’s parents called the Grand Rapids police on Wednesday to report what had happened to their daughter. Three other kids witnessed the alleged incident and confirmed what they saw to law enforcement.

Officers searched the neighborhood and found the suspect, who has not been identified.

The man is being held at the Kent County jail, per the report, while prosecutors decide to press charges.

“The Family Services Team is working in collaboration with the Children’s Advocacy Center to conduct interviews and provide counseling for all juveniles involved in this incident,” the Grand Rapids Police said on Facebook.
