A 39-year-old man has been indicted by a federal grand jury, accused of sexually assaulting a victim on the Red Lake Indian Reservation.

Tony Lee Lussier, of Red Lake, is charged with one count of assault with a dangerous weapon (a knife) and one count of sexual abuse of an incapable victim. 

According to the U.S. Attorney's Office, citing court documents, Lussier assaulted a victim with a knife and engaged in a sexual act with the victim, who at the time was "physically incapable of declining participating in the act."

The incident took place between Sept. 26-27, 2020. 

The charges stem from an investigation by the Red Lake Tribal Police Department and the FBI Headwaters Safe Trails Task Force.
