PHOENIX (KSAZ) -  A 47-year-old man was arrested for allegedly inappropriately touching a 9-year-old girl while she was selling candy apples at her apartment complex.

Police say Jose Munguia approached the girl and made a candy apple purchase at an apartment complex near Indian School and 55th Avenue on June 21.

The girl began to walk away, but soon after Munguia allegedly came up behind her and said he had more money for her.

As she was trying to get away, police say Munguia gabbed her, put his hand down her shirt and fondled her.

The girl's parents and police were unable to find him afterward.

With the girl's help, Phoenix Police Department's forensic artist was able to create a sketch.  

On August 2, the patrol officer who originally helped the girl and her family was patrolling the area when he stopped a suspected impaired driver.

The officer thought the driver matched the sketch and the little girl later positively identified Munguia as the man who groped her.

He was booked into jail for DUI and faces charges for sexual abuse.
