Grafton man facing GSI charges

A 20 year old Grafton man is now facing Gross Sexual Imposition charges for alleged sexual contact with a victim under the age of 15.

Court documents state that the alleged incident happened the afternoon of August 13th at a park in Grafton, ND.

The victim told police that her and Silva were sitting at a picnic table, when Silva began to put his hands on her, outside her clothes.

She also told police that during the assault, Silva picked her up and attempted to bring her over to the bathroom area of the park.

She was screaming for Silva to stop, and believed that Silva was going to force intercourse.

Silva dropped her before getting to the bathroom, and she was able to call a friend to come and help her get away.

Silva will appear in court on August 26th.
