Man, 47, accused of molesting girl

A 47-year-old Fort Wayne man is accused in preliminary charges with two counts of child molesting, as well as battering and strangling the young girl documents say he abused sexually.

According to a probably cause affidavit filed in Allen Superior Court, Gregory Scott Wilson, of the 2900 block of Waynewood Drive, told a girl whom he knew to get into his van, and he then took off her shorts and underwear, and pushed up her shirt. He then performed a sex act on her.

The girl, who is younger than 12, said she told him to stop and bit him on the shoulder.

He told her not to tell anyone, according to court documents.

She told her mother that earlier this year, Wilson molested her in her house and then told her it was an accident, according to court documents.

Wilson told police he “hoped he would be aroused by his actions but was not,” according to court documents.

He remains in the Allen County Jail on $40,000 bail.
