The sex assault complaint was filed with police on Dec. 31, alleging that Wendell W. Matthews, 52, had sexual intercourse with a girl who is now 10 years old, according to a police report.  

Reportedly the assaults happened several times in the victim’s home when she was 7-8 years old, while Matthews was alone with her, police spokesman Rodney Brown said.

The girl made her statements during interviews at the Bridge of Hope advocacy center in North Platte.

Brown said that following further, unspecified investigation, police believed there was probable cause to arrest Matthews.

On Thursday, an investigator contacted Matthews at an unspecified location, and he was taken to the Lincoln County jail, charged with first-degree sexual assault of a child. His bond is set at $250,000.
