STURGIS â€” Oktibbeha County Sheriff's Department arrested a Sturgis resident Monday afternoon on suspicion of sexual battery.
Deputies arrested 19-year-old Nathaniel Hatter for an alleged case of sexual battery against a female victim.
OCSD Sgt. John Davis said the victim is between 18 and 21 years old.
He said Clay County Sheriff's Department notified OCSD about the alleged incident, which occurred early Saturday morning near Sturgis.
Davis said investigators are still actively looking into the case, so details on the matter were limited. He said there was no known prior history between Hatter and the victim. He also said no physical violence was involved in the incident.
Deputies booked Hatter in Oktibbeha County Jail. He was released after posting $5,000 bond.
