LEESBURG – A 15-year-old student was arrested at Leesburg High School on Wednesday after he was accused of molesting a young child.

Jayce Brown was charged with sexual battery of a victim less than 12 years old and placed in the Lake County Jail.

According to a heavily redacted arrest affidavit, the child's mother noticed the child Sunday touching her groin. The child eventually told the mother that Brown had her perform a sexual act.

Sheriff's detectives interviewed the child, who described additional sexual acts she performed on Brown and that Brown did to her.

Sgt. Fred Jones, sheriff's spokesman, would only give the child's age range as being between 4 and 7.

The affidavit adds officials then searched Brown’s bedroom where they said they found lotion and a blanket used during the sexual assaults. They arrested him at the school.
