Police have arrested a 21-year-old Moosup woman accused of kidnapping and sexual assaulting a 16-year-old girl at Moosup Little League Fields.

Police began investigating in October 2012 when the teen reported she had been kidnapped and taken to the Moosup Little League Fields on Lions Drive against her will and sexually assaulted by several people.

Police have made a second arrest in the case. The United States Marshals Office and Plainfield Police Department arrested Cherelle King, 21, whose last known address was in Moosup, Connecticut. 

The United States Marshals Office took King into custody in Amityville, New York on Wednesday.

She waived extradition and was held at the Suffolk County Correctional Facility in New York. 

At 10:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Plainfield Detectives took King into custody and she was extradited to Connecticut, processed at the Plainfield Police Department and charged with kidnapping in the first degree and conspiracy to commit aggravated sexual assault in the first degree. 

On November 21, Plainfield police arrested Muhammed Yakubu, 27, and charged him with kidnapping in the first degree, aggravated sexual assault in the first degree, and conspiracy to commit aggravated sexual assault in the first degree in this case.

King was held on a $250,000 bond and arraigned at the Danielson Superior Court today.

Police said they are continuing to investigate the kidnapping and sexual assault.
