BARRON, Wis. (WEAU) -- A Rice Lake man is accused of having sexual contact with an 8-year-old girl.

Prosecutors filed a sexual assault charge against Robert Geiger, 63, this week. A criminal complaint says the girl told investigators it happened at Geiger's home, and that he had pinned her down. The complaint goes on to say the girl told her mother that she didn't run away because it happened in Geiger's room, and that Geiger had told the girl it was okay.

Geiger is scheduled to appear in court on Wednesday.
