BATTLE CREEK, Mich. (NEWSCHANNEL 3) – Police in Battle Creek have arrested a man on criminal sexual assault charges.
28-year-old Travis Sprouse is accused of CSC involving a young girl, but police think that there may be more victims. They say they found hundreds of pictures and videos in his possession and think that some of them were made locally.
The investigation began on March 19th after police received a tip. Officers ended up raiding a room at the Hometown Inn on North Division Street where Sprouse was arrested and his computer was seized.
Right now Sprouse faces one charges of criminal sexual conduct, 1st degree and one count of CSC, 2nd degree. His next court date is April 22nd. Police think that he will also be charged for manufacturing and possession of child pornography.
Investigators are asking anyone with young children that may have come into contact with Sprouse over the past several years to contact them.
Officers think that the assaults took place between early 2010 and March 19th of this year. The alleged victim's mother had a relationship with Sprouse.
