Police arrested a Front Royal man on Wednesday, accusing him of sexually assaulting a minor.

According to court documents, a 12-year-old girl told police that Gregory Sowers, 51, had “sexual contact” with her multiple times this month.

During an interview Sowers told police he gave marijuana to the girl and another minor around the same time.

Sower’s criminal history consists of “numerous” driving offenses, according to court documents, but no violent or sexual crimes.

Police told the magistrate that Sowers was forthcoming and cooperative during the interview.

Sowers is being held without bail at Rappahannock-Shenandoah-Warren Regional Jail.
