Ky. Man charged with sexual assault

Mar. 05, 2013 @ 11:30 PM

HUNTINGTON -- A 25-year-old man has been charged with second-degree sexual assault stemming from an incident last year.

A criminal complaint charges Michael Samuel Ferguson, 25, of Flatwoods, Ky., with sexually assaulting a woman while she was unconscious at his residence. The incident happened May 19, 2012, in the 800 block of 11th Street, where he was living at the time.

Investigators believe Ferguson assaulted the victim for approximately five minutes. It ended with her waking up and kicking him off of her body. The complaint was based upon statements from both parties.

Ferguson was arrested Friday and arraigned in Cabell County Magistrate Court. He remained incarcerated Tuesday on a $10,000 bond, according to booking records at the Western Regional Jail.
