GOUVERNEUR, New York (WWNY) - A Gouverneur man is accused of sexually abusing an infant.

Village police arrested 20-year-old Xander Dowling on October 29 on a felony count of second-degree aggravated sex abuse.

His arrest stems from an investigation into a 4-month-old baby who sustained a rectal injury.

Officials said the suspected abuse was reported to police on October 22 and was believed to have occurred sometime within the prior two weeks at a North Gordon Street home.

Dowling was arraigned in Gouverneur Town Court.

He was released after posting $1,000 bond.
