Sexual assault being investigated in Linn County


The Linn County Sheriff's Office is investigating a sexual assault that happened on Monday north of Prairieburg.

According to Sheriff Brian Gardner, deputies were called to the home at around 12:36 p.m.  The victim was taken to Mercy Medical Center in Cedar Rapids.

Gardner says this was an isolated incident and doesn't think the public is in danger. 

Despite rumors that have been spreading around that other sexual assaults have taken place in the area, Gardner says the only calls for service in that part of Linn County have been for traffic incidents, narcotics violations and thefts.  He says no other sexual assaults have been reported in rural Linn County.

Gardner recommends that all residents lock their doors and vehicles for general safety.
