DUNN COUNTY, Wis. (WEAU) - An Elk Mound man has been charged with several child sex crimes in Dunn County.

Court records show Richie Knuth, 48, has been charged with second degree sexual assault of a child, fourth degree sexual assault and other crimes.

Criminal complaint says the victim told investigators that Knuth would pull off her shirt and bra and attempt to pull at her pants too.

When asked about the allegations, Knuth told investigators that he had no idea about them and noted that the victim “has been seeing a therapist because she sees people that aren’t there”

Knuth’s cash bond has been set at $5,000. He is scheduled to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on July 14.
