LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities in Las Vegas say a 23-year-old man who is accused of sexually assaulting a 4-year-old girl was identified in cellphone video by a tattoo on his hand.

Jail and court records show that Julio Cesar Medrano was being held Thursday at the Clark County jail pending a June 1 preliminary hearing on felony child sex assault, child abuse and pornography charges and misdemeanor weapon counts.

Records show he also uses the name Julio Rodriguez.

Attempts to reach Medrano’s court-appointed lawyer weren’t immediately successful.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2qwRFZP ) that Medrano was arrested April 21 after an investigation of a 30-second video depicting a man having sex with a child.

The newspaper says a woman provided the video to police.
