Colorado Springs police arrested Richard Truex, a 23-year-old man accused of sex assault on a child.

Police say Truex had sexually assaulted a 7-year-old female, a 6-year-old female and a 11-year-old male living in his neighborhood.

Police say one of the alleged sexual assaults took place near Roswell Park.

The suspect was taken into custody at the Police Operations Center on January 5. He was later booked into the Criminal Justice Center for three counts of the felony charge of Sexual Assault on a Child.
