JUNCTION CITY, Kan. (WIBW) -- A Fort Riley soldier is accused of having sex with a young girl, stemming from an investigation into reports of sexual misconduct.

On Friday, August 16, 2013 around 10 AM, Junction City police searched the soldier's home on County Club Lane in connection with a three week probe into a reported case of unlawful sexual relations with a 15-year-old girl, the JCPD revealed in a press release Friday afternoon.

Detectives arrested 37-year-old Staff Sergeant Ivan Sherren on charges of Aggravated Indecent Liberties with a Child, Sodomy, and Electronic Solicitation.

Junction City police say their investigation is ongoing and no other details were released. Investigators did not reveal how the alleged interaction between Sherren and the victim came to their attention.

Fort Riley officials say Sherren is assigned to the 1st Infantry Division's Combat Aviation Brigade as an aircraft armament repairman.

The brigade has been deploying in different groups throughout the month of August for a nine month mission in Afghanistan but on Friday, Junction City police said Sherren was confined at the Geary County Jail and being held without bond pending his first appearance in Geary County District Court.
