A Hastings man is facing sexual assault and false imprisonment charges after an incident early Sunday morning.

59 year-old Jesus Casarez was arrested early Sunday morning in the 1800 block of West Second Street. The victim of the assault says she was walking home from a neighbor's house shortly before 3:00 a.m. Sunday morning, when Casarez grabbed her and touched her inappropriately. The victim says she knew Casarez lived in the area but did not know him.

Casarez is being charged with 3rd degree sexual assault. He is also charged with 2nd degree false imprisonment because he refused to let go of the victim.

Casarez was released from the Adams County Jail on bond.
