NEBRASKA CITY – A Nebraska City man is charged in Otoe County with third degree sexual assault of a child on Nov. 19.

A $100,000 bond was set in Otoe County Court for 60-year-old Manuel Martinez, who is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on April 17.

Parents told police that their 12-year-old daughter was sexually assaulted. The girl was interviewed at the BraveBe Child Advocacy Center in Lincoln. An arrest warrant says the girl described sexual touching over Thanksgiving week while Martinez was staying at a Fifth Corso residence. He later returned to his Morgan Street residence.

Court records say the child's mother asked to remove a November protection order against Martinez.
