A 22-year-old Utah County man was arrested Saturday on suspicion of sexually abusing two young nieces.
According to a Santaquin police report, officers were initially contacted by a Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints bishop who wanted to speak to officers at the police department. The officer found the suspect at the police station, with a swollen, black eye apparently inflicted by the alleged victims' father after learning of the accusations.
According to the police report, the LDS bishop was called after the assault took place at the 22-year-old man's home. He then took the suspect to the police station for questioning.
