The Dayton Police Department began an investigation after receiving a referral from the Moraine Police Department about a sexual assault reported to them on April 5, according to an affidavit.

An 11-year-old girl told Moraine police that she had been raped in the early morning hours of March 4, allegedly by Belsar, the affidavit stated.

During an interview, Belsar reportedly admitted to having sex with the girl, according to the affidavit.

Belsar remains held in the Montgomery County Jail. Should he post bond, he is ordered to not have contact with his accuser and to be under electronic home detention.
