A Santa Rosa foster dad is behind bars after being accused of sexually abusing a 12-year-old girl in his care.
Santa Rosa police arrested 72-year-old Alfredo Saldaña on two counts of indecency with a child on Friday afternoon.
Investigators told Action 4 News that Saldaña had two foster girls at his home but is accused of sexually abusing one of them.
Police said the girl was 12 years old at the time of the crime but recently made an outcry.
The girl told police that Saldaña licked her in one incident and inappopriately touched her in a second incident.
Action 4 News cameras were rolling when Saldaña was being placed into a police car.
Saldaña told Action 4 News that the allegations are false but did not elaborate.
The 72-year-old man remains in custody at the Cameron County Jail where he is expected to face a judge.
