LAMAR COUNTY, MS (WDAM) - A Hub City man is behind bars and facing a felony charge for molestation of a toddler.

Floyd Ray Blakley Jr. , 26, was arrested on a warrant Monday by members of the Lamar County Sheriff's Department.

He was charged with one count of molesting-touching of a child for lustful purposes.

"It was reported by a family member of the victim, which was 2-years-old," said Lamar County Sheriff Danny Rigel. "The crime was reported on December 7th, but with forensic interviews and stuff with that young of a child it took a little longer to process."

Blakley was booked into the Lamar County Jail and his bond was set at $20,000.
