FAIRBURY, Neb. -- A 30-year-old Fairbury man wanted on several sexual assault allegations has been arrested in Arizona.

Fairbury Police Chief Chad Sprunk told radio station KWBE-AM that Billy Barritt was arrested Thursday in Mohave County, Ariz.

Barritt is charged in a Nebraska warrant with first-degree sexual assault of a child and three counts of third-degree sexual assault of a child.
