ANN ARBOR (WXYZ) — A 25-year-old man is in police custody at Washtenaw County Jail for allegedly sexually assaulting a 96-year-old woman inside her home on Aug. 4.

The incident happened just before 4 a.m. in the 3200 block of Williamsburg at the Colonial Square Cooperative.

Police say the suspect and victim reside within the same cooperative complex.

An investigation found that the suspect, 25-year-old Dejon Dejor Lynn, allegedly broke into the resident's home through a window and assaulted her.
