Detroit man charged with sexual assault of 67-year-old woman

Man pretended to work for company that helps senior citizens, police say

ROMULUS, Mich. - A Detroit man pretended to work for a company that helps senior citizens before sexually assaulting a 67-year-old woman at a Romulus apartment building, according to authorities.

Christopher Darnell Moore, 39, is accused of walking up to the woman's door at 12:30 p.m. June 30 in the apartment building in the 11000 block of Wayne Road, police said.

He told her he was working for a company that assists senior citizens, so she let him inside, officials said.

Once he was inside the apartment, Moore sexually assaulted the woman, police said.

Moore was arrested after an investigation by the Romulus Police Department.

Moore is charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct, which carries a maximum penalty of 15 years in prison.

He was arraigned Wednesday afternoon at 34th District Court in Romulus.

A probable cause conference is scheduled for July 24, and a preliminary examination is scheduled for July 31.

Moore is being held in lieu of $500,000 bail.
