Marquette City Police have arrested a 28-year-old Marquette man for sexually assaulting a 12-year-old boy. Axel Gabriel Acevedo has been charged with first and second degree criminal sexual conduct and accosting a child for immoral purposes. An investigation began last week when police say Acevedo failed to register as a sex offender and discovered he was living in a residence where a 12-year-old boy lived. The boy's mother was notified of Acevedo's status. Police say shortly after the notification, the boy's mother brought him to police saying she believed her son had been assaulted.
The case is still under investigation.
