KOKOMO, Ind. -- (WGHP) -- A captain with the Kokomo Fire Department has been placed on indefinite, unpaid administrative leave effective Tuesday following accusations he exposed his genitals to his 14-year old babysitter, WRTV reports.

According to court documents, Granson approached the babysitter wearing only a towel and then dropped it, saying, “This is for your fantasies.” The babysitter told a detective Granson would walk around his boxers and make inappropriate comments, such as, “If I wanted to rape you I could because I’m stronger than you.”

According to documents, Granson made the girl “pinky promise” that she would never tell anyone that she was his “type.”

The babysitter said she wanted to come forward because of Granson’s four daughters.

“She was afraid that something may happen to them or their friends or other babysitters somewhere down the line,” read the probable cause affidavit.

Granson turned himself in at the jail and was released. Howard County prosecutors filed a felony charge against Granson for “performance before a minor that is harmful to minors.”
