DECATUR, Ill. (WAND) – A man bit a 6-year-old boy’s genitals and is charged with sexual assault, police say.

Officers say the suspect, 20-year-old Colby Park, took the child on a ride in his golf cart with permission from his mother. A sworn statement says the mother heard the child screaming five minutes later and came outside to find him holding his groin. When the boy pulled down his pants, officers say the mother found the area of his genitalia bleeding heavily.

Police say Park quickly drove away from the scene.

The statement says the suspect at one point told the child he would buy him candy if he would lick Park’s “private part”. Police say Park tried to get the boy to not tell his mother.

The child had to be treated for a cut and swelling on his genitals.

Park is facing charges of predatory criminal sexual assault and aggravated battery. His bond is set at $10,000 in Macon County.
