MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. (AP) - A Detroit-area man has been charged with felonious assault after a 13-year-old girl was picked up and tossed into a river.

The Macomb County sheriff’s office says 48-year-old Frank Smoger of Mount Clemens was arraigned Thursday.

Deputies say the girl and her brother were walking Wednesday night along a boardwalk when she was thrown into the Clinton River in Mount Clemens, northeast of Detroit. She was helped from the water by her brother.

The girl described her attacker to deputies who later found an intoxicated man lying on the ground not far away.

Smoger faces a July 6 hearing.
