Elkton man arrested on sexual battery charge


ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. – Police arrested a 37-year-old Elkton man Tuesday on sexual battery charges after an altercation that took place over a week ago.

According to police, Michael Owen Hutchinson was hanging out and drinking with a man and a woman at his home Sunday night.

Police said the man started feeling ill and went out to his vehicle, where he fell asleep. At some point the man woke up to find Hutchinson performing oral sex on him.

The victim became irate and allegedly punched Hutchinson in the head multiple times before he eventually called the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office, deputies said.

Officials said that Hutchinson took off before deputies arrived but was eventually picked up in a traffic stop.

After an investigation by Special Victims' Unit detectives, Hutchinson was arrested at his home Tuesday morning.
