A 40-year-old Cheyenne man who authorities say sexually assaulted a teenage girl is now behind bars.

Laramie County Sheriff's Department spokesman Lt. Don Hollingshead says Donald Crerar turned himself in Wednesday night.

"With the public outpouring regarding his whereabouts he decided it was best that he turn himself in," said Hollingshead.

Crerar was wanted on a felony warrant for third-degree sexual assault of a minor.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for July 14 at 2:30 p.m.
