Suspect Arrested on Sexual Battery Charges at Public Swimming Pool

Two sexual battery charges so far -- but more are likely, as police complete interviews with additional alleged victims.

James Harrison, 38, was booked into the Utah County Jail, after the girls -- ages 6 to 13 -- accused him of touching them inappropriately, while at the Provo Rec Center.

Police say assaults like this are, unfortunately, not uncommon.  They encourage parents to speak with their children about the issue and convince them to report any improper incidents involving adults, particularly at public swimming pools.

Authorities are also asking parents of children -- who were swimming at the rec center, Saturday (June 8) -- to call, if their kids report any inappropriate behavior.
