CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- A Charleston man was arrested Tuesday and charged with sexually assaulting a 3-year-old.
David Wayne Elswick, 26, of 1206 Sixth St. W., was charged with first-degree sexual assault after allegedly abusing the girl, who was left in his care.
According to a criminal complaint on file in Kanawha Magistrate Court, the girl's mother dropped her off at Elswick's home on Oct. 11. Elswick was supposed to watch the girl for the day.
When her mother picked her up, the girl said she and Elswick had watched a "secret movie" and described what sounded like sexual abuse, according to the criminal complaint. During an interview on Tuesday, the girl was able to describe the incident in detail, the complaint said.
Elswick was in South Central Regional Jail on Wednesday on $25,000 bond.
