OCALA, Fla. -

A man was arrested on accusations of sexually assaulting a girl nearly 10 years ago after Ocala police say the victim wrote an essay about it for a school assignment.

Arthur Daymon, 69, was arrested on capital sexual battery charges on Tuesday after the victim told police Daymon assaulted her at Marion Manor Apartments in 2005 when she was 5 years old.

Police say the 13-page autobiographical essay described the events in great detail, writing that Daymon, who was an adult acquaintance of the victim's mother, would repeatedly go into her room late at night, take her to the couch where she wrote he would undress her and then sexually assault her.

Daymon has denied the allegations but police say he did tell them he was been accused of rape in the past.

Daymon was booked into the Marion County jail.
