A 68-year-old man is in custody after police say he sexually assaulted a teenager.
Doug Thompson, of North Platte, was arrested Sept. 15, at a home in North Platte.
The 14-year-old victim told authorities on scene that Thompson had approached her while she was trying on a dress in her bedroom and touched her in a sexual manner, according to a press release from Officer Rodney Brown with the North Platte Police Department.
The person who called 911 said that Thompson was outside of the home threatening to harm himself. However, when officers arrived he appeared “calm and composed,” according to Brown.
He is charged with third-degree sexual assault, a Class IIIA felony. If convicted he could spend as much as five years in prison.
Thompson is in the custody of the Lincoln County Detention Center on a $50,000 bond.
