A 50 year-old man is in the Wichita County Jail, accused of sexually assaulting a little boy.

Harvey James Neil was arrested on Friday, April 29th following an investigation.  Last week, police were called to Spudder Park on the city’s east side last week.  A 12 year-old boy had told family members that a man assaulted him both in a sand box in the park and inside a park restroom.

During an interview at Patsy’s House, the boy told investigators that the man touched him inappropriately in the park and later followed him into a restroom, where the man forced the boy to perform oral sex on him.

Neil is charged with aggravated sexual assault and a parole violation.  His bond is set at $750,000 and he remains in the Wichita County Jail as of Tuesday morning.
