RHINELANDER — A 65-year-old Tomahawk man accused of sexually assaulting a student at Northwoods Community Elementary School in Harshaw will face felony charges filed Wednesday in Oneida County Circuit Court, according to a news release.
An investigation began Tuesday when the Oneida County Sheriff’s Department School Resource Officer received a call from the school reporting a possible sexual assault of a student by an independently contracted employee working at the school. Upon investigation, detectives arrested Stavros Iliopolous on charges of first degree sexual assault of a child, false imprisonment and child enticement.
