TRUMANN, AR (KAIT) - A Trumann man awaits a bond hearing after police arrested him on suspicion of having sex with a 14-year-old girl multiple times.

Dylan Bushong, 18, is accused of sexual indecency with a child and contributing to the delinquency of a minor.

Trumann police arrested Bushong last Friday after receiving a report on June 4 from an Arkansas State Police Crimes Against Children Division.

According to the CACD, the victim told investigators she had "consensual sex with a 24-year-old male in Jonesboro and an 18-year-old male, identified as Dylan Bushong, in Trumann."

During an interview with a CACD detective, the girl claimed she had told Bushong she was 14 after they had sex, however it was unclear exactly when she told him because, according to the initial incident report, she and Bushong had sex "multiple times."

She also reportedly said he gave her alcohol and marijuana.

After failed attempts to contact Bushong by phone and at his last known place of employment, police obtained a warrant for his arrest.

On July 6, Trumann police received information that Bushong was staying at a home on Woodland Circle. An officer went to the home and arrested Bushong, then took him to the Poinsett County Detention Center to await a probable cause hearing.
