A 63-year-old man was arrested early Thursday morning after he was accused of sexually assaulting a girl Wednesday at a South Waco home, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said.

Police were called to the home at about 6 p.m., when an 11-year-old girl reported Juan Olvarez-Jimenez had sexually abused her, Swanton said. 

Police located Olvarez-Jimenez and interviewed him at the Waco Police Department late Wednesday. Swanton said Olvarez-Jimenez was arrested by police on a first-degree felony charge of aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Officers took Jimenez to McLennan County Jail, where he remained Thursday with bond listed at $25,000.
