An American Fork man is facing felony charges after he reportedly sexually abused a 9-year-old girl while babysitting at her home in Vineyard.
Aisake Makai Iongi, 25, was charged in 4th District Court on Friday with two counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, both first-degree felonies.
According to court documents, Iongi was babysitting the girl in August 2017 while her parents were out of town. He reportedly inappropriately touched the girl after she had gone to bed.
In November 2018, he reportedly inappropriately touched the girl again while babysitting with his wife. The girl’s parents learned about the abuse and reported the allegations to police officers.
Iongi was arrested and booked into the Utah County Jail last week.
In interviews with police, he reportedly admitted to the allegations and told officers he texted an apology to the girl’s parents.
