A 34-year-old Laramie man has been arrested and booked on charges of kidnapping and 4th degree sexual assault.  Police say the victim is a minor.

According to Laramie Police, the as-yet-unidentified man was arrested on Tuesday, following an investigation of a reported kidnapping in the Laramie area.  Wyoming State Statute forbids the releasing of identifying information on a suspect of sexual assault until the case is bound over to district court.

4th Degree Sexual Assault is defined as engaging in sexual contact with a minor at least 4 years younger than the actor, in which the actor holds a position of authority over the victim.

If convicted, kidnapping can carry a sentence of up to 20 years in prison.

A charge of 4th degree sexual assault on a minor can carry a punishment of up to five years in prison.
