LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — A 35-year-old man named Lionel Baldwin has been arrested and charged with committing a lewd act against a child at a residence near Pecos Road and Washington Avenue.

According to Baldwin’s arrest report, the child told her mother that Baldwin had made her touch his “peanut” or penis.

The incident reportedly happened in April, but was not reported until June.

Baldwin is currently being held in the Clark County Detention Center. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 2.
