LORAIN – A 37-year-old Lorain man recently became the subject of an investigation after a teenager told police he sexually assaulted the teen two times over the course of seven years.

Timothy Wilson, 37, of the 800 block of West 14th Street in Lorain, was charged with gross sexual imposition at about 8:45 a.m. on Tuesday.

Police will not release the age or gender of the victim, but said that the teenager recently came forward to report two sexual assaults in seven years. Wilson first sexually assaulted the child in 2007 in South Lorain, according to police.

The victim did not report the initial abuse until seven years later after Wilson allegedly assaulted the teenage victim again this April.

According to police, the victim and Wilson knew each other but police would not release the nature of their relationship.

Wilson was brought to Lorain County Jail where he was being held without bond on Tuesday afternoon. His next court appearance is on Wednesday morning at Lorain Municipal Court.
