Centralia Man Arrested for Criminal Sexual Assault

December 5, 2016

A 19-year-old Centralia man is in custody at the Marion County Jail for alleged criminal sexual assault.

Centralia Police arrested Justin Prunty of Cedar Street on Saturday in connection with the incident that occurred in a secluded part of Foundation Park early Friday evening. Police say Prunty allegedly forced an adult woman he knew to commit a sexual act after suggesting she drive to a dark portion of the park after going to the park to view the Christmas lights. The woman later took Prunty home and went home herself.

The incident was not reported until Saturday when the woman told a co-worker what happened and police were called. Prunty claimed the sexual act was consensual.
