A South Bend doctor was arrested and charged with one count of child molestation.

Dr. John Andrew Shull, who used to work for Beacon Medical Group, is accused of forcing a 5-year-old girl to touch him, according to 95.3 MNC’s reporting partners at ABC 57.

St. Joseph County Police then began an investigation last fall.

The victim, who was not a patient of Shull’s, alleges the incidents happened back in February of 2014, ABC 57 reported.

Shull worked the Southeast Neighborhood Health Center as a family physician.

Beacon Medial Group ended its affiliation with Shull last year, according to WNDU.

Shull is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday, WNDU reported.
