    Omaha, NE (KPTM) — Investigators with the Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) say they have arrested a former Fremont police officer following an investigation into allegations of sexual assault of a child.

NSP says Austin Williams, 33, was arrested Friday for two counts of first degree sexual assault of a child, one count of attempt of a class 1 felony, and other charges.

The investigation began last summer when NSP was notified by an advocacy center of a potential sexual assault.

At the time of the investigation, Williams was still employed with the Fremont Police Department.

The NSP says his employment with the Fremont Police ended this week.

Williams was booked at the Dodge County Jail.
