Ann Arbor – Authorities say a man sexually assaulted a child inside a secluded part of a Michigan middle school while the building was open for a meeting.

The Ann Arbor News reports 44-year-old Johnathan James Green of Ann Arbor was arrested last week on charges including first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor under 13 and accosting a child for immoral purposes. He’s jailed, pending future hearings.

The Associated Press sent an email seeking comment Tuesday from Green’s public defender.

Ann Arbor police say Green, who didn’t appear to have any association with the school or the child, allegedly went into Scarlett Middle School on Sept. 9 and coerced the child to go to a secluded part of the school.

The Ann Arbor school district notified parents and is cooperating with police.
