SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - A jury has found a Minnesota man guilty of sexually abusing a young boy in northwest Iowa’s Woodbury County.

The Sioux City Journal reports (https://bit.ly/2cJncwH ) that 23-year-old Joshua Kobold, of Ruthton, Minnesota, was found guilty Thursday of second-degree sexual abuse following a two-day trial in Woodbury County District Court. He is set to be sentenced Nov. 4.

Prosecutors say Kobold forced the boy, who was younger than 12, to perform sex acts at homes in Sergeant Bluff and Salix in 2013 and 2014.

The victim’s mother reported the abuse, and Kobold denied the allegations and moved to Minnesota. He was arrested after another young witness came forward to corroberate the abuse.
