Young Man Charged With Sex Assault On Child At Home Daycare

STERLING HEIGHTS (WWJ) – An 18-year-old Sterling Heights man is accused of sexually molesting a little girl.

Police say Anthony Trandell sexually assaulted the 3-and-a-half-year old child at his home on Utica Road.

According to investigators, the child was in the care of Trandell’s mother who was running an unlicensed daycare out of her home.

Police were called after the girl told her mother about the alleged assault.

A warrant was issued by the Macomb County Prosecutor’s Office on a charge of charged with second degree criminal sexual conduct, and Trandell turned himself in Wednesday to Sterling Heights police.

He arraigned Thursday and was released $100,000 bond. As a condition of his bond, Trandell was ordered to wear a GPS tether and stay at least one mile away from the victim at all times.

He is due back in court for a preliminary exam on Dec. 19 at 9 a.m. before Macomb County Circuit Court Judge Peter Maceroni.
