    Beaton turned himself in around 2 p.m. Friday. He is charged with aggravated felonious sexual assault.

    Still, police want anyone with any knowledge of Beaton or the case to come forward.

    Beaton was released on $4,000 personal recognizance bail. As a condition, he may not work or volunteer with children.

    USA Ninja Challenge has placed Beaton on leave.

    It was not immediately clear if Beaton had an attorney.
