A Kennewick man was recently arrested on suspicion of molesting two young girls when he was a teen.
Thomas L. Barnes, 21, is accused of having inappropriate sexual contact with two girls in 2008 and 2009.
The incidents involving the grade-school age girls at the time were only reported to Kennewick police in January, said Kennewick police. Barnes was 15 at the time.
Barnes has been charged in connection with two counts of first-degree child molestation and is being held at the Benton County jail, said police.
