WILLIAMSON, West Virginia -

A Mingo County man has been arrested on sexual assault charges.

Investigators said Remington Hitchcock of Williamson was seen entering the home of a 15 year old girl. A neighbor called police because the girl's parents were not home at the time.

Police said when they arrived they found Hitchcock hiding in the closet. Police later found explicit texts between the two.  

He is charged with third degree sexual assault and third degree attempted sexual assault.
