Police say that the victim’s parents contacted police last week after the child told them of the alleged sexual abuse. According to police, the alleged abuse is believed to have occurred over several years in the Fant home. Officers served a search warrant for their home and seized evidence. The warrant was obtained after Texarkana, Texas, police’s investigation yielded evidence that collaborated with the victim’s account of abuse.
