A Brighton man has been arrested and charged with Sexual Assault on a child following an investigation by the Commerce City/Brighton Sexual Assault Task Force.
At about 5 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 10, detectives from the task force, composed of detectives from both Commerce City and Brighton Police Departments, took 21-year-old Victor Lee Merritt, of Brighton, into custody. Merritt was booked into the Adams County Detention Center on charges of Sexual Assault on a Child. Due to the age of the victim, no additional information is being released.
These charges are merely accusations, and the accused should be considered innocent until and unless convicted in a court of law.
