A Buffalo task force headed by the U.S. Marshals Service arrested a Mississippi man earlier this week and charged him with molesting a 6-year old girl.

Shawn Jones, 33, is accused of molesting the young girl earlier this year. Deputy U.S. Marshal Scott Baryza said the man fled Mississippi after the incident and was found Wednesday at his girlfriend’s house on Lafayette Street in Jamestown. The arrest was made by the Violent Felony Task Force, a coalition of law enforcement agencies based in Buffalo.
