A man sought by Elk Grove police in a case involving lewd acts on a child has surrendered.

Police on Monday asked the public’s help in locating Ronald Edward Northrup II, 38, who was wanted on a no-bail felony warrant.

Detectives served a search warrant Thursday at Northrup’s Elk Grove home, but he wasn’t there, police said. In phone conversations with detectives, Northrup had refused to turn himself in, they said.

Police said late Monday that Northrup turned himself in and is in custody at the Sacramento County Main Jail.
