Springs Police Arrest Man On Sex Assault Charges

Colorado Springs police have arrested a man they say sexually assaulted a young girl.

Police say the crime happened in August of last year, and the arrest followed an "extensive" investigation over the succeeding nine months.

Augustine King, 37, is accused of going to the victim's home in Colorado Springs and asking for sex. Police say King knew the victim, who was under the age of 18. When she said no, he allegedly forced her to have sex.

Detectives arrested King Friday afternoon.
