John Anthony Dossey, 34, who authorities say is a Gatesville city employee, was in the Coryell County Jail Tuesday charged with indecency with a child by contact and aggravated sexual assault of a child.

His bonds total $250,000.

Dossey, who lives in the Mound area in south of Gatesville, was arrested Friday after an investigation that started in November when Coryell County deputies received a report of a child sexual assault.

Through interviews and DNA tests, investigators were able to gather sufficient evidence to obtain an arrest warrant, Chief Deputy Mark Wilcox said Tuesday.

Further details weren’t released.
