Man accused of harming neighborhood girls


GREENFIELD — A 79-year-old man is accused of sexually assaulting neighborhood girls who helped him with his housework, investigators said.

Robert Cooper, 256 Lullaby Ct., faces three Level 4 felony counts of child molesting amid allegations from three elementary school-age girls, who told police the man touched them inappropriately when they occasionally visited his home, according to court documents.

Cooper was arrested Friday and was being held in the Hancock County Jail on a $1,000 cash bond at press time.
