The Auburn Police Division has arrested a 23-year-old Auburn, Ala., man on a felony child abuse charge, police said Friday.
Nigel K. Mongerie was taken into custody on Thursday and held in the Lee County Jail on a $10,000 bond.
Police said the arrest stems from a complaint that occurred in the 600 block of North Ross Street on Sept. 15. A child under 12 allegedly was abused by a friend of the victim's family.
An investigation by Auburn police and Lee County Department of Human Resources led to Mongerie as a suspect. A warrant was issued for Mongerie on Jan. 6 but he wasn't located until Thursday.
