Suspect sexually assaults 11-year-old girl while giving her a breast tattoo, cops say

A Utah man remains jailed without bail days after he allegedly sexually assaulted an 11-year-old girl while giving her a tattoo at his home.

KUTV reported that a woman contacted authorities after her granddaughter told her that Michael Easley, 24, sexually assaulted one of her friends. The victim reportedly told her friends that Easley had fondled her breast, digitally penetrated her, and forced her to perform oral sex on him.

Police wrote that the friends claimed at least one other girl who was present when the 11-year-old was assaulted was possibly also abused, according to the news station.

While the 11-year-old victim initially denied the allegations, her friend told reportedly officers that they were at Easley’s home on the night in question and that he was giving the 11-year-old tattoo. The probable cause statement disclosed that the 11-year-old ultimately admitted to going to Easley’s home to “smoke weed and cigarettes.”

Police accused Easley of molesting the 11-year-old as he gave her a tattoo on her breast. Easley then allegedly penetrated the victim and made her perform oral sex on him. It’s unclear what he’s accused of doing to the other girl who was reportedly at the home at the time.

KUTV reported that Easley has yet to be formally charged for the sexual assault. He remains jailed without bail in connection with separate drug possession charges.
