WAUSAU, Wis. — A Wausau man accused of assaulting one of the children being cared for at his wife’s home day care has missed another court hearing.

It’s the second time Miguel Angel Ruiz has failed to show up for court. A warrant for his arrest was issued the first time he skipped his appearance on first-degree sexual assault of a child and two other felonies.

WAOW-TV says the 36-year-old is accused of sexually assaulting a girl between June 2008 when she was 4 years old and continuing through June 2010. Police began investigating the case in 2016.

The Rib Mountain day care has since been shut down.
