A 23 year-old Valparaiso man is being held in jail on a felony charge of Sexual Misconduct with a Minor that allegedly ocurred this weekend. Sgt. Larry La Flower of the Porter County Sheriff's Department credits the quick actions of Union Township School Corporation officals for being able to quickly apprehend the man.
According to Sgt. Larry La Flower, a middle school student at Union Township School told administrators that she was assaulted by an adult over the weekend while at a friend's house. School officials immediately contacted the School Resource Officer, who then notified Detectives about the case.
Detectives were able to bring the suspect in for questioning, and subsequently arrest him after the investigation revealed the assault did ocurr.
The suspect will face formal charges on Tuesday, according to La Flower.
