Boy charged in sexual assault of letter carrier
A boy has been charged in the sexual assault of a U.S. Postal Service worker in the region.
Berrien County Prosecutor Michael Sepic said Monday that the female letter carrier was dragged Friday to the side of the 16-year-old’s home in Benton Harbor.
The teen was arrested later at his home and charged in juvenile court with kidnapping and second-degree criminal sexual conduct.
Sepic said he’s seeking a waiver to charge the teen in adult court. A waiver hearing is scheduled for April 18.
The teen was being held on bond in the county juvenile detention center.
