A Panama City man is accused of molesting a child.
A complaint was made by the child's family member on Tuesday in reference to statements made by the child about Daven O. Castillo, officials wrote in a news release. The child, who is under 12, was interviewed at the Gulf Coast Children's Advocacy Center and disclosed incidents of molestation by Castillo occurring over the course of the last several weeks.

Castillo, 62, of Panama City, was contacted yesterday at his home and interviewed about the child's disclosure. After speaking with Castillo, investigators took him into custody and transported him to the Bay County Jail where he was charged with lewd or lascivious molestation of a child less than 12 years of age.
