Barryton Man Accused of Sex Crimes Arrested in Kentucky

A Northern Michigan man wanted for several felony sex crimes was arrested in Kentucky.

Mecosta County deputies say a 43-year-old Barryton man sexually assaulted two separate women, both under the age of 18.

Those girls were the man’s neighbors.

Police arrested the man in Brandenburg, Kentucky Monday on a five count felony criminal sexual conduct warrant.

Police say one girl reports being sexually assaulted in 2008, and the other in 2009 and 2010.

The man is being held in the Meade County Jail in Kentucky, awaiting extradition back to Michigan.
