NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- (WZTV) -- A 22-year-old Nashville man has been charged with sexual battery after allegedly kissing and groping a 10-year-old girl Saturday.
According to the arrest affidavit for Christian Schroer, he and the victim were sitting in the lobby area of the SAE Institute. Sitting near each other on a couch located in the creative media school, the girl says Schroer walked up to her and asked her if she wanted to listen to music he made.
Schroer is said to have put his headphones over her head, insisting she listen. The girl told police since she really did not want to listen, she got up and walked to the back where the other music studios were located.
About a minute after leaving, the girl says Schroer came back to the area, asking if she wanted to see his office. The girl followed, Schroer allegedly closing the door half shut. At that time, the girl says Schroer got on both knees and kissed her with a peck on the lips.
Scared, the girl says she was unable to tell him to stop. She says he then turned on music and told her to dance. He allegedly stood up grabbing the girl's breast and rubbing it. He allegedly also started rubbing her back, and arms over her clothes. The girl says he then got back down on his knees and asked for a kiss, the girl saying no.
The girl says Schroer then asked her pinky promise she would not tell anyone about what happened, to which the girl says she agreed out of fear. He then allegedly opened the door and stated "ladies first," the affidavit states. The girl says she immediately told her friend, who then told security.
When police arrived, the responding officer says Schroer asked "What is this about? Is this because I kissed that girl? The little black girl, she was beautiful."
