Hamilton County man faces sexual battery charges

Posted: Updated:
HAMILTON COUNTY, TN (WRCB) -

A Hamilton County man is charged with aggravated sexual battery after allegedly inappropriately touching a 4-year-old child.

Hamilton County Sheriff's deputies were called to a home on Marrick Drive early Monday morning.

The child's dad told police he'd known the suspect, 25-year-old Christopher Uncapher, for a couple of years and let him stay at the house sometimes because Uncapher was homeless.

The parent told police that his mother had witnessed the suspect touch the child inappropriately while alone in a back bedroom playing with the child.

The parent questioned the Uncapher about the incident in which the suspect gave no defense or denial. The parent then told the suspect to leave.

The grandmother confirmed the report to deputies.

Deputies were informed of where they could locate Uncapher. They found him at the location and placed him into custody without incident and took him to the Hamilton County Jail.  His bond is set at $180,000.
