South Moorhead man, 20, charged with sexually assaulting 2 girls under 13

MOORHEAD – A South Moorhead man is in custody Thursday morning after police say he sexually assaulted two young girls last year, both under the age of 13.

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.
