Man accused of sexually assaulting juvenile

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Police arrested a Jonesboro man Friday on suspicion of raping and sexually assaulting a juvenile.

Donald D. Christiansen, 36, is charged with rape and second-degree sexual assault.

The arrest stems from a "lengthy investigation against Christiansen involving a juvenile over a two-year period," Detective Keri Varner stated in a news release.

She took Christiansen before a district court judge Monday to have bond set on him for a previously issued bench warrant.

Christiansen remains in the Craighead County Detention Center.

Jonesboro police released no other details, other than to say "the investigation continues."
