Lt. Tory Jacobson said the arrest of Jesse Roe Graham, 20, stems from an ongoing investigation that began in March into allegations of sexual abuse that occurred in a single incident in 2013.

Graham is being held on suspicion of two counts of first-degree criminal sexual conduct and two counts of second-degree criminal sexual conduct, both felonies.

Graham is not a relative of either of the girls, Jacobson said, but was a friend of their parents.

Jacobson said police have no information that there may be other child victims connected to this case.

Graham was taken into custody at 9 p.m. Wednesday at his south Moorhead home without incident, Jacobson said.
