Editor's note: The following story contains graphic language.

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - The Angelina County Sheriff's Office is charging a Lufkin man who they say admitted to sexually assaulting an eight-month old baby boy.

Randy Lee Casper, 37, is charged with first-degree aggravated sexual assault of a child.

According to an arrest warrant affidavit, a deputy was dispatched to an Angelina County home on March 22 and spoke with the mother and father of the baby, who said the baby had been sexually assaulted by Casper.

The mother explained she became suspicious when she started noticing her eight-month-old' anus was red and irritated. She said her and the father confronted Casper and he admitted he had been placing his finger in his anus on more than one occasion.

The deputy then interviewed Casper, who said he had placed his finger in the baby's anus "to see if he pooped," according to the affidavit.

A SANE exam was conducted, which showed redness and acute trauma to the baby's anus.

Casper is being held on $10,000 bail.

Laura Squires, the executive director of Harold's House, said that it is very difficult to tell if an infant has been sexually assaulted because he or she can't talk.

"Some of the signs you might want to look for is if there is particular bruising or bleeding around the genital or anal area, or if there is brushing on the thighs, the inside of the thighs," Squires said.

Harold's House is the only place in Angelina and Nacogdoches county where children and adults who are victims of sexual assault can receive an exam by a certified sexual assault nurse examiner.

The signs of sexual assault in an infant are hard to recognize because the symptoms can be similar to other ailments a baby can have, like a urinary tract infection, a rash, or a difficult stool.
