WACO (April 24, 2014) A Waco man was held Thursday in the Dallas County Jail after he was arrested Tuesday on a warrant charging him with sexual assault of a child.

Reginald Shaw, 40, was ordered held without bond on the McLennan County warrant charging him with aggravated sexual assault of a child.

Waco police obtained a warrant for Shaw after a child younger than 14-years-old made an outcry to her mother that a man had sexually assaulted her, Waco police Sgt. W. Patrick Swanton said Thursday.

The victim reported she was acquainted with the man who abused her.

Waco police received the original report from the mother in July 2013 and at that time the mother reported the child said a man had sexually assaulted at a location in Waco and at a separate location in Austin.

Investigators from the local Child Advocacy Center interviewed the victim and turned their evidence over to Crimes Against Children detectives with the Waco police.

Those detectives were able to obtain arrest warrants in the case, Swanton said.

Dallas police and members of the U.S. Marshal’s North Texas Fugitive Task Force located Shaw and arrested him.
