Man arrested for touching, sexual assault of girls he met during soccer sessions

The 31-year-old is expected to be formally charged this week.

Police in Rochester have arrested a man over the sexual assault of a 14-year-old girl he met through off-season soccer sessions.

The 31-year-old man from Rochester is expected to be charged this week with criminal sexual conduct after an investigation by the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office.

In a press release, the sheriff's office says it received reports on March 7 of inappropriate touching by the man against a 14-year-old girl during an off-season soccer training session at Dover-Eyota High School, which happened in December.

As the investigation unfolded, police learned of other allegations involving the suspect dating back to July 2016, and continuing through December 2017.

These allegations included the rape of a then 14-year-old girl whom he knew through soccer activities, which allegedly happened at his home in Rochester.

Investigation into that allegation started on May 10, culminating in the man's arrested on Wednesday at a home in rural Winona County.

He's currently being held in jail in Olmsted County, with the county attorney's office preparing formal charging in the cases of both girls.
