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.
