GRUNDY COUNTY (KWWL) -

Tuesday the Grundy County Sheriff's Office arrested two eastern Iowans following a sexual abuse investigation.

Sheriff Rick Penning says 53-year-old Steven Shorter of Tripoli and 36-year-old Paul Knudsen of Cedar Falls face charges following an investigation that began last week. 

Authorities believe several victims under the age of 18 were involved, but they are not yet saying how many. Many details are not being released at this time since the victims were minors, and more charges may be pending.

Knudsen is charged with sexual abuse in the third degree, and Shorter is charged with suborning perjury.

Shorter was released to Pre-Trial Services, and Knudsen remains in the Grundy County Jail.
