A Muncie man has been accused of sexually abusing a child under the age of 4.
Ricky Allen Pace, 44, was arrested near his home in the 700 block of West 11th St. about 5 a.m. Tuesday.
A witness told authorities she saw Pace performing a sex act on the little girl. Other witnesses said they saw the immediate aftermath of that discovery.
Pace allegedly fled from his house, but was captured a short distance away. He allegedly struggled with police while being taken into custody.
He was being held without bond Wednesday in the Delaware County.
According to court records, the Muncie man has been convicted of invasion of privacy (in Marion County in 2007) and driving while intoxicated (in Wayne County in 2009 and Marion County in 2004).
