WILMINGTON — A man accused of sexually assaulting a child is in the Clinton County Jail.

Travis Eldridge, 28, was extradited from Kentucky and booked in the jail, awaiting his court hearing.

Eldridge on April 4 in Clinton County Municipal Court was charged with one count of alleged rape. He’s accused of committing the act against a five-year-old child.

According to the court affidavit, Wilmington Police Detective Scott Baker, along with a Clinton County Child Protective Service investigator, wrote they met with the victim at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Mayerson Center.

The victim advised the alleged incidents occurred “lots” of times while living at their Wilmington home on Fife Avenue and apparently at their previous residence in Morehead, Kentucky. The victim advised Eldridge touched her inappropriately and engaged in multiple forms of sexual assault.

The victim described the assaults as hurting them, causing injury.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Eldridge on April 20 in Clinton County Municipal Court.
