HOOVER, AL (WBRC) - A Hoover man suspected of abusing a female family member has been arrested.

Hoover Police, in a statement Wednesday to FOX6 News, said Tan Minh Duong, 43, of Hoover, has been charged with sexual abuse. Police said the investigation began in February when officers took a report stating Duong had inappropriate sexual conduct with a juvenile female family member.

Detectives, after investigating, obtained an arrest warrant in March, but was unable to arrest Duong at the time because he had gone on a pre-planned trip to Vietnam.

Police said Duong was arrested on March 26, 2010, when he entered the United States at the Chicago airport. The suspect was extradited back to Jefferson County on April 15, and was being held on no bond.
