A Lehi man was arrested Wednesday on suspicion of sexually abusing a teenage girl.

A teenage girl told interviewers at the Children’s Justice Center that Bryan Frank Bolda, 32, had touched her inappropriately multiple times in his home in Lehi, according to the police report.

The girl also said Bolda sent her inappropriate messages over social media, including a picture of him exposing himself.

In an interview with police, Bolda told police he had touched the girl over the clothing, the police report said. Bolda also told police that he was shirtless in the photo he sent her, but not exposing himself.

Bolda had a criminal history of substance abuse, but no sex offenses, the police report said.

Bolda was booked into Utah County Jail on suspicion of two counts of dealing in materials harmful to a minor, both third-degree felonies, and one count of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony.
