On Nov. 14, members of the Pinal County Sheriff’s Office in Arizona were contacted by an urgent care clinic after the child tested positive for the disease.

Police investigated and identified her father’s roommate, 26-year-old Jacob Sullivan, had sexually assaulted the child, according to the Pinal County Sheriff’s office.

The office did not disclose the exact condition or when the alleged rape happened.

This week, deputies arrested Sullivan and he was booked into jail on three counts of sexual conduct with a minor. He was denied bond, according to authorities.

"Getting this sexual predator off the streets was our number one priority. I am pleased with our Detectives for making quick work of this suspect," said Sheriff Mark Lamb. "I pray that the victim in this case finds comfort and healing. We stand with her and all victims of abuse. We are here for you."
