Odessa police arrest man in connection to sexual assault of a child investigation

ODESSA, TX (KWES) - An Odessa man is behind bars after detectives identified him as the suspect in a sexual assault of a child investigation.

Back on June 16, an unnamed person told police that a man had been sexually assaulting an 8-year-old child for months.

Authorities say an investigation revealed David Carnes, 26, had allegedly sexually assaulted the child more than twice over a period of 30 days.

Carnes was arrested Tuesday and charged with continuous sexual assault of a child.
