A northeast Iowa man is facing charges after a 16-year-old girl reported she was kidnapped and sexually abused. The Fayette County Sheriff’s office took a report at noon on Saturday that a sexual assault victim was at a residence in Lamont.
Deputies spoke with the 16-year-old female victim, who said she was taken by vehicle to a remote location near Arlington and sexually abused. The girl was taken to Oelwein Mercy Hospital. Deputies identified the suspect as 38-year-old Dustin Lloyd Millard of Strawberry Point.
A Clayton County Conservation officer spotted Millard’s vehicle at 4:30 Saturday afternoon. He was arrested without incident near his home. Millard was transported to the Fayette County Jail and charged with second-degree sexual abuse and third-degree kidnapping.
Authorities say they found a number of marijuana plants and other items in Millard’s home that may lead to more charges being filed in Clayton County.
