LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - A Las Vegas Metro Police officer face charges of lewdness with a child following his arrest in Henderson on Wednesday.

Daniel Kelly faces multiple charges of lewdness with a girl under 14.

Henderson Police were following up on a report from Child Protective Services from a girl under the age of 14 who claimed that Kelly inappropriately touched her, and forced her to do the same, during a visit last June. Police haven't said how the two knew each other.

Kelly, who has been with Metro since 2017, has denied all the allegations against him. He's been relieved of duty pending the outcome of the investigation.

Kelly is due in court next Wednesday. He's currently being held without bail in the Henderson Detention Center
