ROCK FALLS – A Rock Falls man was in the Whiteside County Jail on Monday after, police say, he molested a child who was at least 5 years younger than he was.

After what Rock Falls Commander Doug Coppotelli called “a lengthy investigation,” Dreamer D. Bender, 20, of Rock Falls, was arrested Wednesday and charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault with a girl who was at least 13 years of age but younger than 17 years of age, according to court documents.

Bender was being held on $50,000 bond. He will appear in court on Thursday.
