MANATEE COUNTY, Fla. (WWSB) - Deputies have arrested a man for allegedly committing sexual assault in a case that dates all the way back to 1975.

Deputies say the victim came to the sheriff’s office in June 2019 to report the alleged sexual assault by David Probus when the victim was a young child in 1975.

The following month, Probus came to the Manatee County Sheriff’s Office and deputies say in a post-Miranda interview he admitted to the crimes, admitting they took place every other night for around six months.

Probus was placed under arrest without a set bond. His court date is scheduled for August 23rd.
