BOONE COUNTY – A Boone County man is arrested and charged with second-degree sexual assault.
Sheriff Mike Moore reports the arrest of 60-year-old Kenneth Fode who allegedly inappropriately touched a male child relative.
Moore says deputies responded to a residence in Bergman where one of the victim’s parents reportedly witnessed the act. He says the child wasn’t injured in the incident and there was an altercation between Fode and the victim’s father before officers arrived on scene.
Fode did not comment on the incident only saying he did not wish to press charges against the father for attacking him. He was booked and later released from the Boone County Jail on 10-thousand dollars bond.
Moore says he anticipated more charges being filed against the suspect in the near future as the investigation continues.
