A former Frederick man has been charged with child sex abuse.
The Frederick Police Department's Criminal Investigative Division received a complaint of sexual abuse, which previously occurred dating back to 2003, authorities said in a press release.
An investigation determined that Michael Allen engaged in a sexual relationship with the victim for a period of several years. At the time of the original offense the victim was 14 years old and Allen was 44 years old, police said in the release. Both resided in Frederick during the time.
On July 1, 2013, a grand juy indicted Allen.
Today, Allen was apprehended in Greensboro, N.C., where he currently lives. He is being held at the Guilford County Jail awaiting extradition back to Maryland.
