CONGRESS, Ariz. -- Deputies with the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office have arrested a man for allegedly molesting a child multiple times over the past several months.

Deputies responded to a home in Congress early Wednesday morning in response to a child molestation investigation.

When they arrived, 30-year-old Andrew Fuller reportedly confessed to molesting a child who is under the age 15.

Prior to deputies arriving at the home, YCSO said Fuller had gotten into an argument with his wife and struck her in the head and ribs.

Fuller then left his home and met a friend at a Congress restaurant.

The two eventually went to the friend’s home where Fuller allegedly punched his friend several times. Fuller also stole several prescription medications before leaving the home.

According to YCSO, Fuller then returned to his house and confessed to his wife that he had been molesting a child.

Deputies were called and Fuller was placed under arrest.

He was booked into the Camp Verde Detention Center on several charges including nine counts of child molestation and assault per domestic violence.

Fuller is being held without bond.
