Man accused in assault

A man is scheduled to appear in Hennepin County court Monday after being accused of locking up an 8-year-old friend of his children and abusing her.

Abdi Mohamed Jama, 32, Eden Prairie, is charged with second-degree criminal sexual conduct.

According to the criminal complaint, the child's father went looking for her at Jama's house July 25.

Jama's children let in the girl's father, and he heard his daughter's voice coming from an upstairs bedroom. The complaint said the father found the girl locked in with Jama.

They went home, where she told her father that Jama sexually assaulted her before he arrived.

The complaint said Jama denied it. Jama said he was in the room praying when the girl came in and locked the door.
