An Akron, Iowa, man faces a charge of third-degree sexual abuse and multiple child pornography charges.

Wilhelm VonHofsteder was arrested Friday by Plymouth County Sheriff's officials on a warrant following an investigation.

Police say they received a complaint on July 9 of possible sexual abuse of a 12-year-old boy in Akron. After an investigation, Akron police requested the help of the sheriff's office.

A search warrant was executed on July 13 at VonHofsteder's home, and officials say they seized several items, including child pornography.

VonHofsteder is being held in the Plymouth County Jail on $20,000 bond and could not be reached for comment.
