A man has been arrested after police say he urinated on a five-year-old black girl in an alley in western Michigan and called her a racial slur.
The girl’s parents called Grand Rapids police on Wednesday evening and reported that a roughly 60-year-old white man had urinated on her about 20 minutes earlier.
She was in the alley behind their house with two seven-year-olds who witnessed what happened.
The children gave police a description of what the man looked like and authorities tracked him down that evening.
He has not been named but was booked into Kent County Jail on an unspecified felony charge.
The case is under investigation and police say the children involved are being offered counseling.
