LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Metro Police say they've arrested a 72-year-old man after he sexually abused an employee at an area tanning salon.

According to an arrest warrant, the incident took place on Aug. 29 at an undisclosed tanning salon. Police say 72-year-old Danny Lee Malone visited the tanning salon as a customer and followed the female employee into a tanning room.

While there, he allegedly grabbed her from behind, placed her in a bear hug, and tried to kiss her on the lips. When the woman turned away, police say Malone fondled her sexually, despite her pulling away. 

At that point, police say the woman demanded that Malone leave. He eventually did.

A warrant was issued for his arrest on Tuesday, Sept. 8, and he was taken into custody at his apartment on Saddlebrook Court, near Rockford Lane, on Thursday, just after 12:30 p.m. He is charged with first degree sex abuse.

At the time of this writing, jail records indicate that his bond is set at $20,000.
