TULSA, Okla. (AP) - A Bixby man wanted in Illinois on suspicion of binding and sexually assaulting a 10-year-old girl has been arrested in Tulsa.

According to authorities, 32-year-old Gary M.J. Grodin was arrested Thursday and awaits extradition to Swansea, Illinois. Grodin was charged Wednesday with several counts of predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim younger than 13 and possession of child pornography.

His bail has been set at $1 million.

Police say Grodin bound the girl’s hands with zip ties and forced her to engage in sex acts with him over several months. Swansea police also say Grodin filmed some of the acts.
