SILOAM SPRINGS (KFSM) — Police have arrested a Springdale woman on sexual abuse charges after she allegedly assaulted a teenager several times last fall.

Charity Allen-Grace, 36, was arrested Feb. 16 in connection with second-degree sexual assault and sexual indecency with a child — both felonies.

The boy, 14, told police Allen-Grace groped him and rubbed her breasts on his face while he was visiting a friend at her home on North Broadway Street, according to a probable cause affidavit.

He said Allen-Grace walked around nude in front of him and asked him to comment on her appearance.

The boy said he also knew Allen-Grace from interacting with her at Ozark Guidance Center, but no abuse occurred at the center, according to the affidavit.

Steven Hinds, a spokesperson for the center, said Allen-Grace is no longer employed there.

Allen-Grace declined to speak with Siloam Springs police without an attorney.

She is free on an $40,000 bond. She has a hearing set for March 26 in Benton County Circuit Court.
