Mohave County Sheriff’s Office deputies arrested Carlos Jaime Henderson, 30, of Colorado City, for one felony charge of sexual abuse.

MCSO deputies responded to a call about 7:15 a.m. May 23 regarding an alleged sex offense in the 400 block of E. 2200 S. The reporting party said his juvenile daughter, who was staying with family at the residence, had called and told them about the offense.
