The Mahaska County Sheriff’s office has arrested a suspect in the rape of a local real estate agent. Thirty-seven-year-old Anthony Schmidt was arrested Friday in his car and charged with second-degree sexual abuse. Police say Schmidt gave a fake address to a realtor Thursday when he asked her to show him a house in New Sharon. Schmidt is on the Iowa Sex Offender Registry list, considered a “high risk” to re-offend. He was convicted of sex crimes against women in May 1985 in Polk County and in 1988 in Pottawattamie County. He’s now jailed in Mahaska County.
