NATOMAS (CBS13) — A North Natomas Little League coach is behind bars after being accused of touching a teenager.
While the president of the Little League says Daniel Kirk coached a team of 13- to 15-year-olds, police say his victim was someone close to his family whom he allegedly molested for the last four years before the teen came forward and told a relative.
A man at Kirk’s home ran away from our camera and refused to open the door.
A neighbor says she saw several officers at the home earlier this week. The president of the Little League says Kirk resigned on Tuesday without any explanation. Then came his arrest on Friday.
While parents deal with the allegations, the president of the league says right now it doesn’t appear any of his players were victims. The president added that Kirk coached a team last year and cleared a background check.
Police are asking for any other possible victims to not be afraid to come forward.
