A teenager faces felony charges for allegedly committing a sexual assault while impersonating a police officer in the Marshalltown area. The 17-year-old male faces felony charges of third-degree sexual abuse and first-degree burglary in criminal court. He faces others charges, including a simple misdemeanor of third-degree harassment, in juvenile court.
He has pleaded not guilty to the charges. A judge recently denied a motion to transfer all charges to juvenile court. The individual is accused of entering a Marshalltown home in March and claiming to be a police officer. Authorities say he conducted physical searches of several people, of both sexes. A male victim says the teen stripped him and committed sexual assaulted.
