A Livermore Falls man was arrested last week after he allegedly sexually assaulted a child.
The Lewiston Sun Journal reports that Wayne Hinkley, 32, was charged with gross sexual assault.
Police told the newspaper that the alleged sexual assault happened on July 5 and involved a girl younger than 14. It wasn’t reported to police until Aug. 5, and Hinkley was arrested Aug. 7, the Sun Journal reports.
Police said Hinkley and the victim knew each other.
Hinkley is being held at the Androscoggin County Jail in Auburn on $50,000 bail.
