BEATRICE, Neb. (AP) — Police in southeast Nebraska have arrested a Beatrice man on suspicion of raping a 9-year-old boy.
Beatrice radio station KWBE reports that 38-year-old Scott Taylor was arrested at his home Thursday afternoon. The arrest followed an investigation conducted after the boy told his school teacher of the Nov. 18 assault.
Court records say the assault happened at the boy's home while his parents were out.
Taylor was arrested on suspicion of first-degree sexual assault of a child. A bond hearing is expected Monday.
Taylor remained in a Gage County jail on Saturday and could not be reached for comment.
