Two Lakeshore men were arrested this week for allegedly sexually assaulting the same six-year-old girl on separate occasions.
Hancock County Sheriff's Detective Steve Saucier said Thursday that Timothy Shiyou, 46, and Ray Billiot, 51, both of Lakeshore were arrested this week and charged with sexual battery.
Saucier said the Department of Human Services received a complaint about the possible sexual assault of the girl, and it forwarded the information to the sheriff's office.
Saucier said the two men had no immediate connection to each other, but were both known to members of the victim's family.
The alleged sexual assaults were separate incidents, Saucier said.
Shiyou was arrested on Monday and has since been released on bond.
Billiot was arrested on Wednesday and was still being held on a $75,000 bond at press time Friday.
If convicted, both Shiyou and Billot could face up to 30 years in prison, officials said.
Saucier said the case is still ongoing and additional charges are possible.
