Cedar Rapids man charged with sexually abusing child 12 years ago
CEDAR RAPIDS — A Cedar Rapids man was arrested Friday on charges that he sexually abused a child under the age of 12 multiple times between 2007 and 2011.
Matthew Linden Noehl, 26, is facing three counts of second-degree sexual abuse. He would have been between 10 and 14 years old at the time of the abuse.
According to a criminal complaint, Noehl abused the girl multiple times and in multiple ways during those five years. He later reached out to her over Facebook and told her he thought she hated him “because of what they did when they were younger,” the complaint states.
A warrant was issued for Noehl’s arrest on March 15, and he was arrested on March 17. He’s being held in the Linn County Correctional Center on a bond of $50,000. A no contact order has been filed on behalf of the victim.
