A north-central Iowa man is charged in a weekend attack on two girls.
The Wright County Sheriff’s Department charged 61-year-old Steven Nelson of Clarion with two counts of third-degree sexual abuse following an incident late Friday night in rural Goldfield.
Authorities received a report that two minor females had been at a rural property with Nelson and both reported they were assaulted. Following the execution of a search warrant, Nelson was arrested early Saturday morning and placed in the Wright County Jail where he was held on a $10,000 cash or surety bond for the two felony charges.
Nelson was later released on Saturday on his own recognizance after an initial appearance in Wright County Magistrate Court.
