Man wanted for sexual assault to a child is now in custody

ROCKFORD (WREX) — A Rockford man wanted for sexually assaulting a child is now in custody.

Saul Colin, 31, of Rockford, was taken into custody on Wednesday.

Police say the incident happened in February of 2016. Officers say a victim under the age of 13 was assaulted in the 700 block of Cunningham Rd.

Police say Colin had a relationship with the victim’s mother.

A warrant was obtained for Colin’s arrest in December of 2017, but he had moved out of the area, according to police.
