A 14-year-old boy and an 88-year-old man have been arrested by the La Plata County Sheriffs Office in two separate incidents for alleged sexual assault on a child.
The 88-year-old man was identified as Eduvigen Manzanares of Ignacio.
Details of the assault, including when and where it occurred, were not included in a news release Thursday from the La Plata County Sheriffs Office.
Efforts to reach sheriffs Investigator Shelley Williams for comment were unsuccessful Thursday and Friday.
Manzanares was arrested Tuesday and has been released on a $250,000 personal recognizance bond, meaning he wont have to pay anything unless he fails to show up for scheduled court appearances. He was released in part because of his health and age, the news release said.
The 14-year-old boy was arrested Thursday on suspicion of sexually assaulting a 5-year-old girl, according to another news release.
As of Thursday evening, he was being housed at the Robert E. DeNier Youth Services Center.
