18 year old accused of sexual assault of 13-year-old girl

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Police are investigating a sexual assault after a man said his 13-year-old daughter had sex with an 18-year-old boy.

According to a Jonesboro Police Department incident report, Officer Erik Johnson was dispatched to help with a confrontation Thursday evening.

A man told Officer Johnson his 13-year-old daughter went to a sleepover at the suspect's house on April 8.

The dad had just found out about the incident Thursday and immediately called for police assistance.

Officer Johnson got a written statement from the girl saying she went to the suspect's house and was in a bedroom with him and two other girls.

The report states the teens were watching movies when the suspect moved closer to the girl and touched her thigh under the covers.

The two other girls left the room for something, and when they came back the girl and boy were kissing.

They left the room again, and the 13-year-old girl and 18-year-old boy then reportedly had sex.

The girl then called her dad to come pick her up.

The case was handed over to the Jonesboro Police Department Criminal Investigation Division for continued investigation.
