A man arrested last month in Grundy County for sex crimes against children has now been arrested on a similar charge in Benton County. Thirty-seven-year-old Christopher Buck of Grundy Center was arrested on a Benton County warrant charging him with indecent contact with a child and assault with intent to commit sexual abuse.

Vinton police say they acted on a report about an incident that may have taken place in October 2002. Buck has a preliminary hearing on that charge Friday at the Benton County courthouse. He’ll be arraigned next Tuesday in Grundy County District Court on charges of third-degree sexual abuse and lascivious acts with a child, in a complaint filed last October. Buck’s being held at the Benton County jail on 13-thousand dollars cash-only bond.
