Timothy Burns 052217

A 50-year-old Maine man is accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl.

According to NBC affiliate WLBZ, Timothy Burns of Limestone was arrested Monday morning on a warrant.

A relative of the victim tells WLBZ the family has been waiting for police to make an arrest since early April, when they found out about the assault and reported it to authorities. The attack happened in February.

"She was just a little innocent girl," the relative said, according to WLBZ. "She didn't deserve that, to be held down against her own will and be made to do things that [are] not even remotely right, in any way, shape or form, for any child to go through."

Burns, who did not post his $10,000 cash bail, is being held at Aroostook County Jail.
