MORGAN HILL (CBS SF) — A 19-year-old man was arrested and jailed Saturday in the alleged sexual abuse of a 14-year-old girl in Morgan Hill, police said today.

A Morgan Hill police officer on Saturday went to a home in east Morgan Hill on a report of an alleged sexual assault on the girl, according to police.
