A registered sex offender was arrested in Michigan after investigators say he sexually assaulted a child and registered a fake address with law enforcement.

David Wayne Latty Jr., 36, is charged with four counts of sex offense with a child and one count of failure to register as a sex offender, according to the news release from the Iredell County Sheriff's Office.

The initial report of the alleged sex assault was filed on Sept. 11. Detectives interviewed the child.
