Police have arrested a man suspected of sexually assaulting a person with intellectual disabilities.

Detectives have been investigating since July 5 after police learned that the victim had been sexually assaulted several times over the past year. The assaults happened at a home in Ceres, and the victim apparently knew the suspect and was able to identify him to police.

Michael Scudder, a 51-year-old Ceres resident was interviewed by officers Tuesday and then arrested. He now faces rape and oral copulation of a person incapable of giving consent charges.

Anyone with information about the case is asked to call Detective Hively at (209) 538-5728, or email: ahively@ci.ceres.ca.us
