A 54-year-old Marengo man is facing predatory criminal sexual assault charges after an incident three years ago involving a child younger than 13, Marengo police said Friday.
The Marengo Police Department received a report of a sexual assault in July, according to a news release issued by the department.
After a months-long investigation, the department charged Dominick R. Zarlenga, of the 500 block of East Washington Street in Marengo, with one count of predatory criminal sexual assault of a child and two counts of criminal sexual abuse.
Predatory criminal sexual assault of a child is a Class X felony punishable by six to 30 years in prison.
Zarlenga was arrested by Marengo police and taken to the McHenry County Jail, where he remained Friday on $150,000 bond. He would have to pay $15,000 bail to be released.
Marengo police ask that anyone with information about a crime call the department at 815-568-7231 or McHenry County Crime Stoppers at 800-762-7867.
