A Colorado Springs man is in custody after being arrested on child sex assault charges. According to witnesses 52 year old Rocky Duggan was arrested at an assisted living home on Van Buren where he was a patient on Tuesday. "He was arrested for sexual exploitation of a child and sexual assault of a child while in a position of trust." explains Sgt. Darrin Abbink with the Colorado Springs Police Department.
The case first broke back in August when police were led to a dumpster that had explicit pictures of a young girl in it. "They had found some sexually explicit material depicting a child. " explains Abbink, "Officers went out and colleted that material and some other evidence out of that dumpster."
Police say the abuse may have gone on for years. "Unfortunately it looks like this has been going on for some time and this child has been victimized over a period of years." says Abbink. Duggan is being held on a $100,000 bond. His next court date is scheduled for September 22nd.
