One man is in custody after authorities discovered a partially nude teen in a remote area of Highbanks Metro Park on Friday afternoon.
According to the Delaware County Sheriff’s Office, a park ranger was on patrol in the park when he came across a 57-year-old man behaving erratically. Upon investigation, the ranger discovered a young teen girl, partially clothed, in some type of restraints.
The sheriff tells 10TV the man and teen had met online and mutually agreed to meet in the park.
The sheriff adds the teen was not attacked nor did she appear injured. However, she was taken to the hospital as a precaution. They also say the incident is unrelated to a sexual assault of an 18-year-old male in the same area of the park last week.
The male suspect was taken into custody on sexual assault charges.
