An investigation into an alleged sexual assault has been turned over from Tallmadge police to the Summit County Sheriff's Office due to a conflict of interest.
The investigation has been transferred to the sheriff's office due to a relative of a Tallmadge police officer being involved.
Few other details are being released, including the age of the reported female victim.
NewsChannel 5 reports that the alleged incident happened over the weekend, and that Tallmadge police say it's best to get a "fresh look" at the case from an outside investigator.
