ADRIAN — An Adrian man was arrested Monday following the report that he sexually assaulted a victim the previous day at his residence.

The victim told police that they had helped Beau Bullerman, 19, return home, because he was intoxicated. After the victim helped Bullerman to his basement bedroom, he allegedly locked the door that led back upstairs. He then reportedly tried to initiate sex, but the victim said they felt afraid, told him to stop and pushed and kicked him.

At that point, Bullerman allegedly held the victim down and sexually assaulted the victim.

Bullerman was arrested and charged with third-degree criminal sexual conduct, indicating penetration accomplished by force. The felony offense carries a maximum possible sentence of 15 years in prison and/or a $30,000 fine, but if convicted, Bullerman will be sentenced based on criminal history.

He was released from Nobles County Jail on Wednesday on conditional bail at no cost.
