A 30-year-old man has been charged regarding a Detroit home invasion and sexual assault that happened in April.
Christopher C. Hightower is accused of breaking into a home in the 12000 block of Stringham Court and sexually assaulting the 56-year-old woman who lived there, prosecutors said. He allegedly stole many personal items from the woman and fled the scene.
The Detroit Police Department’s investigation concerning the assault prompted to Hightower’s arrest.
He has been charged with two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct, one count of first-degree home invasion and one count of armed robbery.
He is expected to return to court Friday.
