The Marion County Sheriff’s Office has arrested the man suspected in five sexual assaults since July. Sheriff’s Office Spokeswoman Jenifer Lowe says 37-year-old Michael Alan Frye was positively identified by victims in two of the cases and his vehicle matched descriptions in all four Marion County attacks.
He was arrested early this morning and formally charged with one count of sexual battery and one count of kidnapping, relating to his first attack July 19th. Lowe says more charges against Frye, relating to the other attacks, are pending. Frye’s first court appearance is tomorrow.
