MECOSTA COUNTY, Mich. (WOOD) — A 43-year-old man was arrested in Kentucky on criminal sexual conduct charges out of Michigan.

The arrest follows an investigation by the Mecosta County Sheriff’s Office into the sexual assault of two, unrelated juvenile females who were neighbors of the suspect.

One of the victims reported being sexually assaulted in 2008 and the other juvenile told police she was assaulted in 2009-10.

The suspect, a 43-year-old Barryton man, was working in the Brandenburg, Kentucky area when the U.S. Marshall took him into custody on Monday.

He remains in the Meade County Jail in Kentucky awaiting extradition back to Michigan.

The suspect’s name is not being released until he is arraigned in Michigan.
