A Fort Dodge man was arrested Monday night after an incident on Sunday. Fifty-nine-year-old David P. Bailey was charged with lascivious acts with a child, indecent contact with a child and three counts of 3rd degree sexual abuse.

At about 9:10 Sunday night, Fort Dodge officers were dispatched to Trinity Regional Medical Center to investigate the sexual abuse of a mentally-challenged 13-year-old female. During the investigation officers developed sufficient information to indicate a sexual abuse incident had occured at 615 South 15th Street in Fort Dodge with Bailey named as a person of interest.

A follow up investigation was conducted Monday in coordination with the Webster County Attorney’s Office. This developement led officers to obtain an arrest warrant for Bailey. He was being held today in the Webster County Jail in Fort Dodge.
