INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – An Indianapolis babysitter faces several charges after she allegedly sexually assaulted a young girl.

According to court documents, Marleeta Wilcox, 47, has been charged with child molestation and criminal confinement.

Police began investigating Wilcox after an incident that occurred on June 14 when Cox was hired to babysit two girls, ages 7 and 8.

According to court documents, the 7-year-old girl told her father that Wilcox “licked” her “private parts” multiple different times. The 8-year-old girl said her sister yelled, “Sissy, sissy, help me, call dad, help me!” The girl said she tried to call her dad, but Wilcox took the phone away from her and called her a snitch, according to court documents.

Lawrence police are still searching for Wilcox. If you have any information about her whereabouts please call Crime Stoppers at 317-262-8477.
