A Huron County grand jury has indicted a man arrested who reportedly had sex with a 14-year-old Norwalk girl and a robbery suspect.

Ryan M. Davis, 26, of 106 Woodlawn Ave., is charged with unlawful sexual conduct with a minor in connection with a May 21 incident. If convicted of the third-degree felony, he faces nine months to three years in prison.

“It sounds like everything happened at Midtown Manor,” Norwalk Police Capt. Mike Conney said soon after Davis was arrested. “He was a friend of the family. He had actually been living in the (girl’s) home.”

Conney said the girl initially denied having sex with Davis, but eventually admitted to it. 

Two officers arrested Davis at his residence about 11:15 p.m. July 8. He was taken into custody without incident and transported to the Huron County Jail.

In a separate case, Matthew Robbins, 18, of 52 State St., is charged with aggravated robbery, robbery and felonious assault, all in connection with a May 10 incident.

“This happened in the city of Norwalk. The victim did have to receive medical treatment,” said Huron County Prosecutor Daivia Kasper, who declined to elaborate Friday.

The male victim went to Fisher-Titus Medical Center. It’s unknown if he knows Robbins.

• William Blanton, 51, who reports being homeless, on possession of methamphetamine in connection with a June 30 incident.
