PERRY, Okla. (KOKH) —
A former Perry Police Department officer has been arrested and accused of lewd acts with a child.
The Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation says Matthew Lance Vassar, 45, was arrested Oct. 13. Court records allege Vassar had been performing lewd acts on a 12-year-old girl and that the alleged acts began in 2013. Records also show the former officer may have been "grooming" the young girl.
Vassar was a police officer at the time of the allegations.
He remains in the Kay County Jail on a bond of $750,000.
