SoCal man sexually assaulted teenager in San Francisco, police say
A Southern California man has been arrested for sexually assaulting a teenage tourist in bushes near San Francisco's Fisherman's Wharf, police said Wednesday.
Christopher Dutel, 18, was booked Tuesday for investigation of sexual assault and false imprisonment, Sgt. Daryl Fong told the San Francisco Chronicle. Dutel's hometown in Southern California was not named.
Police had been searching for the girl, described as a juvenile visiting from outside the United States, for two hours before she and Dutel were found behind bushes early Tuesday. The girl's friends had reported her missing at 2:30 a.m.
Both the girl and Dutel were taken separately to a hospital. They were treated for injuries that were not considered life-threatening, Fong said.
