A 40-year-old Wolcott man has been arrested on allegations he has been molesting an underage girl for the past couple of years.

Thomas C. Gaurin, of Orchard Street, was arrested Friday and charged with forcible touching and endangering the welfare of a child. The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office alleges Gaurin had inappropriate physical contact and inappropriate conduct with a female under the age of 17.

Gaurin was arraigned in the Village of Wolcott Court and was remanded to the Wayne County Jail in lieu of $500 cash bail. He is scheduled to reappear at the Village of Wolcott Court at a later date.
