MINOT, N.D. (AP) - A Minot man is accused of sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy with developmental disabilities.

Fifty-three-year-old Darrell Vernon Midkiff made an initial appearance in district court in Minot Thursday. Midkiff denies assaulting the boy.

The Minot Daily News (https://bit.ly/2mAt6ts ) reports a probable cause document accuses the defendant of assaulting the child when the boy was playing at Midkiff’s trailer with his grandson earlier this week.

The document says Midkiff’s son came home and discovered the assault. Authorities say the boy is mentally disabled and has autism.
