STORM LAKE, Iowa (AP) — Storm Lake police have arrested a man they had been seeking on suspicion of sexually assaulting a Storm Lake woman.

The Sioux City Journal reports that 18-year-old Edgar Saul Moreno-Leiga, of Sioux Rapids, was arrested Sunday on a charge of third-degree sexual assault. Police had asked the public for help in finding Moreno-Leiga, and he turned himself in at the police station Sunday evening.
