KENT COUNTY, Mich. — Two Comstock Park residents were arrested in South Carolina Friday in connection with the rape of a 1-year-old girl in West Michigan, according to Kent County officials.

Other sources have confirmed that those suspects are 25-year-old Michael Emory and 27-year-old Stevie Foehl, who were arrested by the FBI and local officials in Spartanburg, SC on fugitive warrants related to the rape.

The investigation remains open, and authorities are concerned that there may be other victims in this case.  It may be several months before Foehl and Emory are brought back to Michigan.

Neither suspect has a prior history of sex crimes.  Foehl was arrested in 2008 for retail fraud, and Emory in 2004 for misdemeanor larceny.    Both could spend the rest of their lives in jail if convicted.
