A 37-year-old man has been arrested after police said he sexually assaulted a girl for more than four years. 

According to the arrest affidavit, Travarius Leon Dent sexually assaulted the girl when she was 8-year-old while the victim's mother was at the hospital in 2012. 

In February 2018, the victim told her mother about the assault. She reported that Dent would sexually assault her as much as every other day for about four to five years, the affidavit said. 

A warrant was issued for Dent on May 22. He was charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child, a first-degree felony, and booked into the Bell County Jail on a $200,000 bond.
