Good morning. I certainly understand the situation and your concern. Yes, this is something which can and should be reported to the police. They will need to investigate and will certainly want to speak with your adult child, to find out information about what happened. I am inclined to believe that there would not be any physical evidence to support this BUT the testimony of your child could be enough to arrest and charge and take the case to trial on. It would be at the discretion of the State to prosecute but if your child wants to come forward and cooperate, there could be a basis to file criminal charges.
