Suspect held on sexual assault charges

A suspect is in custody in the Milam County Jail, charged with sexual assault of a child in connection with an incident that occurred over the weekend, Police Chief Randy Dixon reported.

A warrant for Brandon Diserens, 33, of Coryell County was issued after officers responded to a call reporting the assault on Sunday. A 14-year-old girl was taken to McLane Children’s Hospital in Temple for examination, Dixon said.

With the help of several area law enforcement agencies, police tracked the suspect to Waco, where they found he was a patient at Providence Hospital. He was arrested Tuesday when he was released from the hospital, Dixon said. Diserens was charged with second-degree felony sexual assault of a child.
