A 27-year-old man is behind bars after authorities say he sexually assaulted his young daughter with a small liquor bottle.
11 News has chosen not to use the man's name or picture to protect the young victim in this case.
According to an arrest warrant, the man had been drinking in his bedroom while his daughter was with him. He then allegedly took a 50 milliliter bottle of Jim Beam and penetrated her with it.
The man faces multiple felony charges including sexual assault on child, aggrevated incest, and sexual assault on a child younger than 15 by a person in a position of trust.
He is currently in the Mesa County jail on a $25,000 bond.
