Man Accused Of Sexually Assaulting A Child On A Greyhound Bus, Back In East Texas

The man accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old Longview girl on a Greyhound bus is back in East Texas awaiting trial.
Lakelvius Swain was brought to Tyler Friday morning from a Shreveport jail.
Police arrested him Tuesday at a Shreveport bus terminal. The girl claims Swain sexually assaulted her Monday night during a bus ride from Dallas.
Friday afternoon, Swain was arraigned. He's charged with aggravated sexual assault, a first degree felony.
Police said he was brought to Tyler, because the girl said the alleged assault happened not far from city limits.
"She's been to our bus stop before," said Officer Don Martin. "The incident occurred just prior to the bus arriving in Tyler at the bus station and she exited the bus to use the restroom, so she knew she was in Tyler."
The court appointed an attorney for Swain. The case will go before a grand jury and Swain could be indicted.
