Charges filed in West Fargo sexual assault

WEST FARGO, N.D. (AP) -- Six months after a girl claimed she was raped by a home intruder, charges were brought against a 22-year-old man she met online.

The Fargo Forum reports that Seth Michael Salsman of Fargo was charged last week with one count of sexual assault. A warrant was issued for Salsman's arrest on Monday.

Authorities say the girl reported that she was raped the evening of Dec. 2. She told authorities her parents were not home at the time and the suspect came to her bedroom through an unlocked front door.

According to court documents, the girl was taken to a local hospital where a rape kit was administered.
