MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - A registered sex offender is in custody after Montgomery police charged him with sexually assaulting a six-year-old girl.
Major Huey Thornton, a police spokesman, said in a statement Thursday officers received an anonymous tip about the rape over the weekend.
He said a joint investigation by juvenile detectives and a parole officer confirmed the assault occurred.
37-year-old Calvin Green of Montgomery was charged with sodomy and sex abuse of a child under the age of 12. Thornton said Green has an extensive criminal history that included multiple sex-related offenses.
