Granville Man Arrested for Predatory Sexual Assault Against a Child
GRANVILLE, N.Y. -- A Granville man is under arrest, accused of having sexual relations with a relative, under 13-years-old, over a two-year period.
Police say, when 43-year-old, Michael Currier, became aware that authorities were looking for him, he contacted State Police but made threats to harm himself.
As he arrived at the barracks, he locked his car doors, doused himself in gasoline, and attempted to light a match. That is when Troopers smashed in the windows and used a fire extinguisher to keep the match from lighting.
Currier was arraigned on predatory, sexual assault charges and will be back in Granville Court on July 22.
