Fayetteville man arrested on sex assault charge


A 19-year-old Fayetteville man has been arrested and charged with two counts of Second Degree Forcible Sex Offense.

Deshawn Jehovah Peterson, who was apprehended without incident Thursday, is being held on a $15,000 secured bond.

The charges stem from an incident May 1 where a 20-year-old acquaintance says she was sexually assaulted.
