Man arrested for statutory sex offense in Wayne County

The Wayne County Sheriff's Office says a 37 year old man has been arrested for a sexual assault involving a 15 year old girl.

Deputies say Mauricio Garcia was taken into custody on Monday for statutory sex offense, following an investigation based on a report they had received the previous day.

Authorities say Garcia and the victim knew each other, and that this had been an "ongoing occurrence" for the past two years.

Garcia was arrested at his home and taken to the Wayne County jail, where he was placed under a $300,000 bond.
