A Davenport man was being held in the Scott County Jail in lieu of bond Monday afternoon after police say they found cell phone video of him sexually abusing a sleeping 4-year-old child.

Tavian Jordan Eicher, 20, faces two counts each of second-degree sexual abuse and sexual exploitation of a minor. He is expected to appear in Scott County Court Tuesday morning via video arraignment.

On Thursday, the Davenport Police Department opened an investigation into the sexual abuse of a 4-year-old child.
