Investigators said the victim was sleeping in his bed when the suspect allegedly touched his genitals.

GRAND TRAVERSE COUNTY, Mich., (WPBN/WGTU) -- Police are investigating an alleged criminal sexual assault in the Grand Traverse County Jail.

Investigators said an inmate was sleeping in his bed when another inmate grabbed his genitals and tried climbing into his bunk.

Records show the suspect left the victim's cell after the victim yelled at him.

An inmate in a neighboring cell said they saw the suspect standing at the victim's bunk but said they didn't see what or if any contact occurred.

According to the suspect, he was just shaking the victim's leg to wake him up because he heard the victim talking in his sleep.

Investigators say the victim is pursuing charges and the case has been passed on to the prosecutor's office for review.
