Bruce Henderson

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - A man from Lake City is accused of sexually assaulting a child.

The investigation began when doctors at the Lake City Medical Center notified authorities about a child in their care who may have been a victim of a sexual battery.

Authorities said the girl's mother took the child to the hospital.  Doctors said the injury appeared consistent with sexual abuse, according to investigators.

Detectives questioned and arrested 27-year-old Bruce Henderson.  He is facing one count of sexual battery on a victim less than 12 years old.

Henderson is being held on a $200,000 bond at the Columbia County Detention Facility.
