Suspect arrested in sexual assault case

A 20-year old Marshalltown man has been charged with third-degree sexual abuse (Class C felony) after he allegedly engaged in inappropriate sexual contact with a 15-year-old girl.

According to a Marshalltown Police Department report, Glenn E. Menter was charged after the MPD began an investigation in late February into allegations of inappropriate sexual contact between the suspect the teenage girl.

MPD Capt. Michael Hanken said the detective assigned to the case was able to locate and interview with Menter late last week, which then prompted Menter’s arrest.

Menter was released with an initial court appearance date set for 8:30 a.m. May 23 at the Marshall County Courthouse.
