WHEELING, W.Va. --

A Wheeling man is charged with two counts of sexual assault and two counts of sexual assault by a parent or custodian.

West Virginia State Police arrested Robert Joseph Morris, 30, Monday night after a lengthy investigation.

Police accuse of Morris of having sex with a then-5-year-old boy in a home in downtown Wheeling, according to a criminal complaint.

Police say the alleged incident happened in a three-month span in 2012.

Morris was arraigned by Ohio County Magistrate Harry Radcliffe. As of Tuesday morning, he remained in the Northern Regional Jail on a $1 million bond.
