Largo man sexually assaulted girl, police said

LARGO — A 24-year-old man was arrested Thursday, accused of sexually assaulting a girl under the age of 12.

Sean P. Faustrum, of the 300 block of Ridge Road NW, was charged with felony sexual battery. He is being held without bail in Pinellas County Jail.

According to an arrest report, the child was taken to Largo Medical Center on April 5, complaining of pain. Medical staffers determined the child had suffered "significant injuries to her vagina."

A child protection team investigator determined the injuries likely occurred between April 4 and 5.

Faustrum repeatedly told police he was the only person with the child during that time frame, an arrest report shows.

The name of the child was not released because she is the victim of a sex crime.
