Warrenton man accused of sexually assaulting woman showing him apartment

Thursday, February 28, 2008

O'FALLON, Mo. (AP) -- A Warren County man faces charges of forcible sodomy and armed criminal action for allegedly assaulting a woman showing him an apartment for rent.

Michael Allen Sutton of Warrenton is held on $200,000 cash-only bond after being charged Wednesday. He is 33.

Police say the incident happened Tuesday afternoon at an apartment complex in O'Fallon. Sutton is accused of holding a knife to the leasing agent's throat and forcing her to perform a sex act.

Police say they tracked him down in part because he showed identification at the leasing office before seeing the apartment.

Court records show Sutton was sentenced in 1998 to seven years in prison for a sexual assault.
