BRIMFIELD -- A Brimfield man has been charged with raping his 11-year-old step-daughter.
Tuesday morning, detectives said the family came to the Brimfield Police Department to explain what happened.
That's when officers arrested Eric Hicks and charged him two counts of rape and gross sexual imposition.
Police said Hicks admitted to molesting the girl multiple times earlier this year. Hicks is in the Portage County Jail and no court date has been set.
On the police department's Facebook page, Brimfield Police Chief David Oliver said "Our thoughts and prayers to the victim and family."
