READING, Pa. -

A man who police said sexually abused a young girl eight years ago has been arrested.

Arch Nichols was taken into custody Friday morning and charged with indecent assault, indecent exposure, corruption of minors and endangering the welfare of children.

Authorities first issued a warrant for Nichols' arrest in January 2008 after the girl, then 10, came forward with allegations that Nichols sexually abused her two years earlier.

Nichols, now 39, was committed to the Berks County Jail on $50,000 bail. He's due in court for a preliminary hearing on July 29.
