A 21-year-old North Charleston man is accused of fondling a 5-year-old boy.

David Earl Prioleau of Marson Street was arrested Tuesday and charged with criminal sexual conduct with a minor under 11.

The boy’s mother reported the incident Oct. 3. She told North Charleston police she had seen her son on Prioleau’s lap with a cover draped over them the day before and her son told her Prioleau had touched his private parts, according to the incident report.

Prioleau was being held in the Charleston County jail Thursday pending a bond hearing.
