A Fox River Grove man accused of sexually assaulting two minors will be in court Thursday on felony charges. 

Sheriff’s officers Monday night arrested Korem Johanson, 37, of the 8900 block of Gardner Road, on charges of predatory criminal sexual assault, indecent solicitation of a child, aggravated criminal sexual abuse and criminal sexual abuse.

Police believe the incidents occurred between July 1 and 22, according to the complaint. Johanson knew the victims, who were 5 years old and 8 years old, according to the complaint. Johanson’s bail is set at $50,000.

He also is charged with possession of a firearm without a Firearm Owner’s Identification card after police said they found a Smith and Wesson 9mm handgun in his possession, according to a criminal complaint filed Tuesday at McHenry County court. 

On Monday, a judge granted an order of protection against Johanson in connection with the allegations.
