Safety Harbor, Florida-- Two years after it allegedly happened, deputies say the child victim of a sexual battery shared her story, and now they have the accused man behind bars. 

According to the Pinellas County Sheriff's Office, the girl said 54-year-old John Richard Polgar, Jr., who is a registered sex offender, molested her back in June of 2011 at a home in Safety Harbor. 

Two days after launching their investigation, deputies reportedly determined Polgar did sexually batter the girl, and arrested him on one charge of sexual battery on a child under the age of 12. 

Polgar apparently denied the allegations. Officials say their investigation is ongoing.
