A Salem, Iowa, man is now accused of having inappropriate contact with children.

Roswell William Wixom Sr., 83, was arrested and charged this week with Lascivious Acts with a Child and two counts of Indecent Contact with a Child.

According to a statement released Monday, the Henry County Sheriff’s Office opened an investigation earlier this month, after receiving a report of inappropriate contact with children in Salem.

Sheriff Rich McNamee was not available Monday afternoon to explain what happened, or to say how many children were involved.

Wixom is in custody on a $9,000 bond.

He’s scheduled to appear in court this Thursday.
