BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - A 57-year-old Sioux County man accused of sexually assaulting two young girls is facing multiple charges in federal court.

Jonathan Stretches of Cannon Ball made his initial court appearance Monday. He’s charged with five counts of sexual contact and one count of aggravated sexual assault in connection with incidents involving two minors between 1994 and 2005.

According to court documents, the first three counts allege he inappropriately touched one of the girls on three separate occasions. The documents show the three other counts involve another girl, including one count alleging Stretches attempted to have sex with her and threaten death or serious injury to the girl’s mother.

KXMC-TV (https://bit.ly/1AekXKM ) reports Stretches is set to return to court Wednesday. It wasn’t immediately known if he has an attorney yet.
