Mesa County, Colo. -- Yesterday evening, deputies arrested David Lee Haskin, 24, of Grand Junction, on a warrant issued for two counts of sexual assault on a child with a pattern of abuse. Investigators found evidence that substantiates the victim's account of meeting David on the Internet and remaining in touch with him through the social media outlet, Facebook.

The victim tells investigators, that in February 2015, she invited David into her home without her guardian knowing he was there. The victim was 12-years-old at the time she claims multiple sexual encounters occurred.

We would be remiss to not remind locals about an upcoming free safety class hosted and taught by Grand Junction Police Officer, Suzette Friedenberger. The class is tailored to parents, along with their high school and college age children, to attend together. It will be on the evening of September 8, 2015. For more information, CLICK HERE.

David's bond has been set at $50,000.00 cash only, and he currently remains in the Mesa County Detention Facility. For updated information on any inmate currently in our jail facility, visit our Inmate Inquiry System website.
