LEWIS CENTER (Dawn Faugl) -- A Columbus man is facing charge of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old girl at Highbanks Metro Park Friday. Scott Spencer, 57, was arrested and charged with two counts of sexual battery.

Delaware County Sheriff Russell Martin said an alert park ranger noticed Spencer acting suspiciously, discovered the girl, and detained Spencer.

The victim was taken to the hospital, but did not have any serious physical injuries.

The Sheriff's Office says Friday's assault was in no way related to the August 5th sexual assault of an 18-year-old male at Highbanks Metro Park. They are still looking for the suspect in that case.15-Year-Old Girl Sexually Assaulted at Highbanks Metro Park
