STURGIS, Mich. A man was arrested Thursday for trying to slide his hand up a 14-year-old’s skirt and touch her.

Sturgis Police say the 66-year-old was on North Nottawa Street and followed the girl who was walking with another classmate.

Police saw the suspect walking by the police station, the same day the warrant was issued, and asked for him to come into the lobby. When he was told about the warrant, he tried to flee the scene. He was then forced back inside the station.

The suspect faces an outstanding warrant for Attempted Criminal Sexual Conduct in the 4th degree. He is currently in the St. Joseph County Jail.
