A man wanted in a sexual assault investigation involving a minor was arrested in Brantford, Ont., and taken back to Windsor late Tuesday night.

Carlos Leon, 24, faces charges of sexual assault, sexual interference, failure to comply with a release order, and breach of probation.

Police say Leon has previous convictions for sexual offences.
