Warsaw Police arrested a 50-year-old Winona Lake man Tuesday after a two-week investigation into the rape of a 17-year-old Warsaw girl.

On April 6th, 2014, Warsaw Police were called to Kosciusko Community Hospital for a possible rape.

Investigators found that in the early morning hours of April 6, Michael J. Elliott forced sexual acts with the 17-year-old family friend at her Warsaw residence.

Warsaw Police sought arrest warrants for rape, a class B felony, and sexual battery, a class D felony against Elliott and served those warrants Tuesday.

Elliott was transported to the Kosciusko County Jail and booked on the charges with a $50,000 bond. Warsaw Police were assisted by the Winona Lake Police Department and the Kosciusko County Prosecuting Attorney's Office.
