Pierre man arrested for sexual contact with minor

PIERRE, S.D. (KCCR) – A Pierre man has been arrested for having sexual contact with a minor. Captain Bryan Walz with the Pierre Police Department says officers arrested 46-year-old James Robert Angyal for Sexual Contact with a Person Incapable of Consenting because of Physical or Mental Incapacity.

Walz says officers took a report on June 27 that Angyal was observed having sexual contact with the victim. The 16-year-old juvenile female has a medical diagnosis which would make her incapable of granting consent. Through their investigations officers determined that probable cause existed for the arrest.

Meanwhile Angyal had fled to Lyman County where he was apprehended by the Lyman County Sheriff’s Office and South Dakota Highway Patrol. Angyal is currently being held in the Hughes County Jail on a $10,000 cash bond.
