Wendover man arrested for alleged sexual assault of a child

A Wendover man has been arrested and charged for allegedly sexually assaulting a young girl.

According to a probable cause statement, an 8-year-old girl living with 49-year-old Loyd Lindsey, reported last September that Lindsey had touched her private areas on several occasions. Lindsey also allegedly asked her to have intercourse with him two different times and she told him no, according to the statement.

In addition, according to the statement, the girl told police Lindsey showed her pictures of girls without clothes on and wanted to show her a movie.

Lindsey was charged Thursday with five counts of sexual abuse of a child, a second-degree felony. His initial appearance in 3rd District Court is scheduled for Sept. 8.
