A 24-year-old Hardy man has been arrested for allegedly assaulting a 2-year-old child.

James Wheeler Jr. was arrested in Nuckolls County Wednesday on a warrant stemming from an alleged sexual assault incident last week.

A baby sitter discovered Friday that the toddler appeared to have been abused. The child was immediately removed from the home and taken to a local hospital for treatment.

Wheeler was arrested following the resulting investigation.

He is currently being held on a $100,000 bond at the Webster County Jail.
