Interlochen Man Arrested for Sexually Abusing Two Young Girls

Posted: Updated:

Walter Eldridge already knew that the mother of the two sexually abused young girls was going to turn him in. So, police say he call 911 himself.

Court records reveal that both the 6 and 8-year old girls told investigators Eldridge had been inappropriately touching them, and performing sex acts on them while he babysat; deputies say the abuse has been ongoing for about a year.

Although talking to the young victims is never easy, it's what has led to an arrest in this disturbing case.
