SAN DIEGO (AP) — Police say a costumed teenager found bloody and unconscious during Comic-Con was likely the victim of a fall, not an assault.
San Diego Harbor Police said Thursday that they arrested a 29-year-old man early Sunday on charges of sexual contact with a minor in connection with the case. Police didn't release his name.
After a four-day investigation, police concluded that the girl's injuries and physical evidence at the scene were consistent with a fall from about 6 feet. She was found in the pool area of a hotel near the San Diego Convention Center, where Comic-Con is held.
Reports that a costumed conventioneer was attacked spread through social media after Comic-Con concluded Sunday.
