The victim was reportedly under 11 years of age.
Bond was arraigned by Brasher Town Justice John L. Burns and sent to the St. Lawrence County Correctional Facility with bail set at $5,000 cash or $10,000 bond. The arrest was made at 9:17 p.m. Thursday at a residence on state Route 420 in the town of Stockholm.
