SHERMAN -- Sherman police have arrested a man they say sexually assaulted a child yesterday. 25-year-old Anthony Lee Sanford was taken to the Grayson County Jail Fruday is morning. Sherman police say Sanford assaulted a five-year-old boy when the child went to go play with his friends.

The boy's mother noticed something was wrong with her son when he came home, so when she took him to the Texoma Medical Center. Medical officials examined him then called the police.

"It’s a very unfortunate incident that should never happen,” said Sgt. Bruce Dawsey of the Sherman police department. “At least our investigators were given enough information and were able to make an arrest."

Sanford is charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child, a felony crime.

    This was my nephew and it was at the Sherman apts across from Midway Mall. He was not walking down the street he was going to play w/his friends right next door and the guy who did this was the kids' father. He has boys of his own in my opinion shouldn't. His wife still defends the man. My sister lost her apartment because of this monster and he CONTINUES to taunt them both. We went to the Denison firework show and stopped at a gas station on the way back. The man showed up and made an effort to go in the store smiling at my nephew and harassing my sister. He was rubbing in our face that he gets away with it. We called the police department and the even though his bond condition is to stay 1000 feet away, he was not arrested. He walked away...

    This man has already been released and was allowed to return to the apartment across the hall from the child. This is such a travesty to put him back on the street, much less next door to the child he assaulted.

    someone who would molest a child should be turned loose and let the people take care of him,instead of being protected in a jail
