A 55-year-old Sahuarita man was arrested on suspicion of sexual abuse Tuesday.

Sahuarita Police Lt. Juan Zamora said a 16-year-old girl told someone she was being sexually abused by the man. The person she told is legally obligated to contact authorities under such circumstances.

The investigation revealed the man had admitted to certain acts to his wife and he was arrested.

The Green Valley News is not naming the suspect to protect the identity of the girl.
