Man accused of sexually assaulting underage girl arrested

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — A man is in custody after allegedly sexually assaulting an underage girl.

Police were called to a Grand Rapids home around 5:30 a.m. Thursday on a report of a criminal sexual conduct involving a 29-year-old man and juvenile girl. Police said the suspect and victim know each other, but did not release any additional information about how.

The suspect fled the home before officers arrived, but detectives were able to obtain a warrant for two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and one count of second-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Detectives and police worked throughout the day and evening and eventually located the suspect in the 1400 block of Beckwith View NE Thursday night.

The suspect surrendered to police and is being held at the Kent County Correctional Facility.
