Attempted Teen Sex Abuse

Storm Lake, IA (KICD)–A Laurens man is accused of attempting to sexually abuse a teenage girl.

Late Friday evening Storm Lake Police met with a 13-year-old who said she was assaulted by her babysitter, 36-year-old Agwa Oman, who was babysitting for several children between the ages of five and thirteen. After putting the children to bed, he allegedly attempted to sexually assault the teen. The girl began to yell at which time Oman fled from the residence leaving the children home alone. A short time later an adult sibling to the children arrived at the residence. Police searched for Oman and found him early Saturday morning.

Following an investigation police charged Oman with Assault With Intent to Commit Sexual Abuse, Child Endangerment, and Public Intoxication 3rd Offense. He was booked into the Buena Vista County Jail on a $2,000 cash bond.
The victim did not report any physical injuries.
A report was forwarded to the Iowa Department of Human Services.
