Bond for a Rolling Meadows man charged with molesting a 5-year-old girl was set at $250,000 in Cook County Circuit Court today.

Javier Martinez-Lopez, 45, of the 4900 block of Algonquin Parkway, has been charged in Rolling Meadows branch court with predatory criminal sexual assault.

Martinez-Lopez was arrested in connection with a July 13 incident in which he is accused of molesting the girl while she visited his home with her mother, said Assistant State’s Attorney Maureen McGee.

Martinez-Lopez placed his hand under the girl’s underwear, McGee said.

He told the girl that if she told anyone he would get a gun and rape and shoot her, said McGee. The girl later told a relative and Martinez-Lopez admitted to police he touched her, McGee said.

The U.S. Immigration and Customs Service placed a hold on Martinez-Lopez for further questioning, McGee said.
