A man accused of molesting an 8-year-old child in Black Canyon City has been arrested in the Valley, the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office said.

Phoenix resident Joshua Williams was located in Phoenix on Feb. 28, deputies said.

He was interviewed, arrested and taken to the Camp Verde Detention Center.

YCSO deputies said Child Protective Services investigators contacted them last year regarding a sexual assault that Williams allegedly committed.

Detectives learned the allegations surfaced in Black Canyon City in 2009. Authorities said they conducted extensive interviews with the victim.  

Williams was booked on a charge of sexual abuse and remains in custody without bond.
