A Turlock grocer was arrested Wednesday night on allegations he molested a child over the span of several months.

Sadik Algharazi, 37, of Turlock was taken into custody and gave a statement to the Turlock Police investigators prior to being booked into the Stanislaus County Jail on suspicion of child molestation.

According to the Stanislaus County Recorder’s records, Algharazi is the owner of Sid’s Oasis Market on East Avenue in Turlock.

The investigation was initiated when the alleged victim, a male juvenile older than 13 years, contacted the Turlock Police Department with the allegations. The victim told investigators the alleged abuse had been ongoing for several months.

Investigators are looking into the possibility that there could be more victims and are asking anyone with knowledge about the case to contact Detective Timothy Redd at 668-5550 ext. 6625.
