CEDAR RAPIDS — A Cedar Rapids man is being held at the Linn County Jail on a $50,000 cash-only bail after he allegedly sexually abused a 6-year-old girl.
According to the criminal complaint, John R. Rodriguez, 48, faces a charge of second-degree sexual abuse. He made an initial appearance Tuesday morning in Linn County District Court.
Police say Rodriguez was arrested after a 6-year-old girl reported he had touched her inappropriately in November 2018 at a residence in Marion.
Additionally, Rodriguez’s DNA was found in the girl’s underwear, the complaint states.
A warrant was issued for Rodriguez’s arrest last week and he was taken into custody Friday.
