CALMAR (KWWL) -- The Winneshiek County Sheriff's Office has made an arrest in connection with a reported sexual assault.

The victim, a teenage girl, told the sheriff's office that two men sexually assaulted her on the Prairie Farmer Trail near Calmar Wednesday evening.

She says two white men in their 20's started making sexual comments to her as she was walking on the trail.

She says one of them then ran up behind her and grabbed her butt and were trying to touch her in other places while they were making lewd comments to her.

The girl then ran back to her car and called 9-1-1.

The sheriff's department says they interviewed 23-year old Travis Wayne Giddings.

After the interview, Giddings was placed under arrest and charged with assault and harassment.

He is being held in the Winneshiek County Jail.

There is no word at this time on the second man the girl said was involved.
