In a release on Wednesday police say the 18-year-old’s name can’t be revealed because of a publication ban.

He is facing several charges, including two counts of sexual assault, two counts of sexual interference, and one count of assault.

The suspect arrested has to abide by several court-imposed conditions and is not allowed near any park, community center or swimming area where people under 16 are present.

He’ll be in court in early February.
