SAN ANTONIO – San Antonio police arrested a 62-year-old man who detectives said pulled down the pants of a 6-year-old boy then got into bed with him.
The man, identified as Pascual Lopez Sandoval, is charged with a second-degree felony.
According to an arrest affidavit, Sandoval and a woman were babysitting the boy when he took the victim to his bedroom to put him to sleep.

Sandoval is now charged with indecency with a child by contact. His bond has been set at $75,000.
