A Waco man was arrested Wednesday after he failed a polygraph test about indecency with a 10-year-old girl, an arrest affidavit states.

Charles Allen Lidster, 33, of Waco, was arrested after McLennan County Sheriff's Office investigators looked into a report Lidster had indecent contact with the girl in January of last year, according to the affidavit. The girl told investigators during a forensic interview in October that Lidster had her come into his bedroom, take off her clothing and lie in his bed, the affidavit states.

Investigators had Lidster take a polygraph test Wednesday, which he failed before confessing to the incident, the affidavit states.

Lidster was arrested on a second-degree felony charge of indecency with a child by contact. He was also found to be in possession of drugs and a weapon at the time of his arrest.

Authorities took Lidster to McLennan County Jail, where he remained Thursday with bond listed at $108,000.
