UNION TOWNSHIP | A 23-year-old man was arrested Monday and is accused of sexually assaulting a teenage girl, authorities said. 

David Erdelles, of Valparaiso, faces a sexual misconduct charge and is expected to be formally charged Tuesday, according to the Porter County Sheriff's Department. 

A 14-year-old girl told Union Township School officials Monday that she was sexually assaulted Saturday night while she slept over a friend's house, the Porter County Sheriff's Department said. Sgt. Larry LaFlower, spokesman for the sheriff's department, said the girl was sleeping when the assault happened.   

A school resource officer contacted deputies who were able to track down Erdelles for questioning. He was arrested Monday and is being held until charges can be formally filed.
