EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A man accused of having a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl in East Lansing has been caught in Los Angeles, California.

According to the East Lansing Police Department, a 26-year-old man accused of having a sexual relationship with a gymnastics student he instructed was arrested Sept. 4 by the U.S. Marshals Service. Police, who started investigating in 2014, say none of the alleged crimes happened at the gymnastics center in Delhi Township where the man worked.

Authorities say the man fled the state when he learned of the investigation. The suspect faces six counts of criminal sexual conduct charges.

Authorities have begun the process to have the suspect extradited back to Michigan, where he will be arraigned.
