A Willard man was arrested without incident at his home Sunday on two sex-related charges.

Marcus Hampton, 26, of 115 Crestwood Drive, is charged with sexual battery and contributing to the unruliness or delinquency of a minor. The Willard Police Department started its investigation between late Saturday and early Sunday.

Chief Mark Holden said suspected victim is a 17-year-old, but he declined to disclose the person's gender.

"It's not a local resident," Holden said. "The victim's father is upset about it. We are trying to protect the identity of the victim at this point."

Hampton has no previous criminal record.

"I don't think we have anything on him," Holden said.
