SOUTH ROYALTON, VT -- A South Royalton man was arrested Wednesday on charges of sexual assault on a child stemming from incidents that allegedly occurred from 2002-2005, state police said.

Nelson Duncan III, 47, is accused of aggravated sexual assault on a child, lewd or lascivious conduct with a child and cruelty to children in connection with sexual abuse of a girl who was then 6-9 years old that allegedly took place in Nelson's home. The cruelty charge stems from accusations that Nelson prevented the girl from using the bathroom, police said. Nelson is being held at Southern State Correctional Facility in Springfield and is to be arraigned today.
