HASTINGS, Minn. (WCCO) — A man who contacted police to complain that he was being harassed by rumors claiming he raped a young girl has been charged with criminal sexual conduct.

According to the criminal complaint, 21-year-old Robert Classen, of Hastings, Minn., contacted police last month. He said he was being accused of raping a girl. He told police he wanted the rumors to stop.
