Man charged with sexual battery

An Oxford man was arrested for an alleged sexual battery Tuesday after the Oxford Police Department took a report of an alleged sexual assault Sunday that had already occurred.

The victim said Tyler Kirk, 20, sexually assaulted her at her residence. Evidence was collected from the victim’s home and was taken to the Mississippi Forensics Lab.

On Tuesday, Kirk was picked up on a warrant for sexual battery and taken to the Lafayette County Detention Center where he was booked on a $20,000 bond.

The case is under investigation.
