MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa teenager faces felony charges for allegedly committing a sexual assault while impersonating a police officer.

The Marshalltown Times-Republican reports (https://bit.ly/1ioi94C ) the 17-year-old male faces felony charges of third-degree sexual abuse and first-degree burglary in criminal court. He faces others charges, including a simple misdemeanor of third-degree harassment, in juvenile court. He has pleaded not guilty to the charges.

A judge recently denied a motion to transfer all charges to juvenile court. The Associated Press generally does not name juveniles accused of crimes.

The teen is accused of entering a Marshalltown home in March and claiming to be a police officer. Authorities say he conducted physical searches of several people, both male and female. A male victim says the teen stripped him naked and sexually assaulted him.
