DNA Evidence Links Suspect to Assaulting a Minor

A warrant is out for a Bismarck man following DNA evidence linking him to unwanted sexual contact with a victim under 18. 

22-year-old Garret James St. Claire Junior faces a Class A felony of gross sexual imposition from a June 2017 incident. 

The victim reports waking up to St. Claire touching her. 

She reported the incident to police immediately and a DNA sample was taken. 

St. Claire was questioned by police and denied any wrongdoing.

Over a year later, DNA taken from his right and left hands matched enough for charges to move forward.

He is not currently in custody.
