A youth soccer coach from Roseville has been arrested and arraigned in the 39th District Court on a charge of first-degree criminal sexual conduct.

Jason Allen Niemasz, 33, of Roseville, was arrested Dec. 10, based on an incident that allegedly took place Nov. 14. According to a press release from the Roseville Police Department, police received a report from a 12-year-old girl’s parents, who stated that Niemasz allegedly molested their daughter while she was a guest at Niemasz’s home.

The girl had become friends with one of the suspect’s children while playing soccer with the American Youth Soccer Organization in Warren, where Niemasz was a volunteer coach. Reached for comment, the organization planned to send a statement later today.

Niemasz was being held in the Macomb County Jail on a $100,000 cash bond ahead of a probable cause hearing Dec. 23. He was arraigned Dec. 11 and requested a court-appointed attorney, though one had not been named as of press time Dec. 17.

Roseville police said that they believed this was not an isolated incident and were urging any other potential victims to speak with their parents and report any assaults to the police. They could contact their local police departments or Roseville Police Detective Jeremy Scicluna at (586) 447-4510.
