PHOENIX — A 44-year-old man was arrested last week after allegedly sexually abusing a 14-year-old girl, authorities said.

Detectives responded to a report of a possible sex crime on July 28 involving Gregory Guthrie and the minor, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.

Detectives were told the incident took place inside of Guthrie’s car outside of the girl’s home. Her 8-year-old sister witnessed and reported the abuse, authorities said.

During the investigation, detectives conducted a forensic interview with the teen, who confirmed the abuse, and gathered additional evidence that supported the reported sexual assault.

When Guthrie was arrested on July 29, he admitted to abusing the girl and knowing she was 14 years old, MCSO said.

He was booked into the MCSO Intake, Transfer and Release facility for sexual conduct with a minor.

Anyone with information about Guthrie is asked to contact the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office at (602) 876-8477.

No additional information was available.
