TEXARKANA, Texas (KTAL/KMSS) – A Texarkana man and his son are behind bars, accused of sexually assaulting a 7-year-old relative.

According to the Texarkana Texas Police Department, 56-year-old David Fant and 19-year-old Hayden Fant were arrested Wednesday for the continuous sexual abuse of a child.

The victim’s parents contacted police last week after the child told them of the alleged sexual abuse, which is believed to have occurred over a period of several years at the Fant home.

TTPD detectives obtained warrants for the arrest of the David and Hayden after evidence gathered during investigation collaborated the child’s account of the abuse. Following their arrest officers served a search warrant for their home and seized evidence in the case.

David and Hayden are still in the Bi-State Jail with bond set at $200,000 each.
