WOODSTOCK – Police apprehended a man Wednesday who allegedly sexually abused and assaulted a child in his family.
McHenry County Sheriff’s deputies arrested Robert J. Gould, 51 – one of the county’s 10 most wanted fugitives – on an array of charges that allege he sexually assaulted a family member younger than 18 and sexually abused and assaulted a victim younger than 13.
It is unclear on the county jail log whether there are multiple victims or whether all the charges involve one victim.
Gould was charged with predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and predatory criminal sexual assault of a victim younger than 13. He also was charged with criminal sexual abuse of a family member younger than 18 and criminal sexual assault with force.
Gould’s last known address was in Wheeling. His bond was set at $500,000, and he is due in court again Thursday morning.
A request for more information from the sheriff’s office Wednesday afternoon was not returned.
