LAS VEGAS — A Clark County grand jury has indicted a Utah man in the sexual assault of an 8-year-old girl at a Mesquite resort.

In the indictment unsealed Friday, 52-year-old Steven Dale Bingham of St. George was charged with first-degree kidnapping and two counts each of sexual assault with a minor under the age of 14 and lewdness with a minor under the age of 14.

Police said a man approached the girl at an arcade at the Oasis on July 27 and offered her money for help with his groceries. The girl accompanied the man to a secluded spot where she was assaulted, police said.

Bingham was arrested after Oasis security staff provided surveillance video of the incident.
