McLennan County deputies arrested a Moody man Wednesday in a sexual assault of a child case involving a 6-year-old.

Larry Joe Goodwin was in the Bell County Jail Wednesday afternoon charged with indecency with a child/sexual contact, aggravated sexual assault of a child and child abandonment/endangerment with intent to return, according to online jail records.

His bond has not yet been set.

He was arrested after a traffic stop near Belton.

The investigation that led to the arrest started after the victim made an outcry while in Wyoming visiting relatives, Moody police Chief Roger Kennedy said.

“We are contact with the boys biological parents who are totally cooperative, and they are in no way suspects, the defendant is believed to be lone suspect in case,” he said.
