November 16, 2020 4:23pm


The Sioux County Sheriff’s Office arrested an Orange City Man on charges of sexual abuse of a minor.  32 year old Luis Mateo-Jose, of Orange City, was taken into custody by Sioux County Authorities at noon on Sunday.


The arrest stemmed from an investigation that began in August of 2020, when deputies received a report that Mateo-Jose had illegal sexual contact with a child.


While investigating, deputies discovered that the sexual assault occurred approximately two years prior to the August report at a location south of Rock Valley.


Mateo-Jose was charged with 2nd degree sexual abuse, and is being held on a $25,000 cash or surety bond in the Sioux County Jail.
