Storm Lake Police were told by a juvenile female that she had allegedly been sexually assaulted repeatedly over a ten year period by her mother’s boyfriend. The juvenile, along with three younger siblings, were removed from their home where the suspect resided and placed into protective foster care by the Iowa Department of Human Services.
Following an investigation, police Wednesday afternoon charged 33-year-old Miguel Saldana-Ortiz of Storm Lake. Police allege many more incidents of abuse occurred than what is reflected in the current charges. Saldana-Ortiz was jailed on a $25,000.
