Arizona authorities recently arrested a man who allegedly sexually assaulted a cognitively-disabled person back in October.
Buckeye resident Sergio Morales, 63, was arrested at his home on Monday by Buckeye Police Department officials. His arrest stems from an October 1 sexual assault incident.
Morales is accused of sexually assaulting a cognitively-disabled adult while the victim was on a walk near 4th Street and Centre Avenue in Buckeye.
After the assault, the victim was rushed to Southwest Family Advocacy Center for a forensic interview. Over the course of the last six months, detectives gradually obtained enough information to locate the suspect.
Buckeye police officers were assisted by U.S. Marshals Services Task Force members during their investigation. Morales was arrested without incident.
After his arrest, the 63-year-old suspect was transported to a local jail and charged with sexual assault.
Buckeye Police Department is actively investigating the case. There are no additional details at this time.
