• Khatoonian skipped his trial to see Michigan girl he met online
  • He was facing sexual assault charges
  • He was awaiting his sentencing

A California man was arrested on Wednesday for escaping his sexual assault trial to see a Michigan girl he met online.

Michael Khatoonian was awaiting sentencing when he left the state and was tracked down by U.S. Marshalls and Michigan Police.

According to CBS Detroit, Khatoonian was found guilty in December with two counts of sexually assaulting a child less than10 years old, two counts of forcible sexual abuse and one count of lewd, lascivious touching of a child younger than 14 years old.

Kahatoonian had sexually assaulted the girl in his home while her mother was in the bathroom and again while her mother was seated at the other side of the couch from them, Fox News reported.

The attorney’s office also said that he had prior strike convictions for battery causing bodily injury in 2000 and arson on an inhabited structure in 2006.

It was not clear whether he will face additional charges in Michigan.
