APPLETON — An Oshkosh man faces new child sex assault charges after police say a boy called 911 to say he was taken from Appleton and brought to a Fox Crossing motel.
Jordan R. Huffman, 52, of Oshkosh, was charged Thursday with first-degree child sexual assault – sexual contact w/ a child under 13.
He also was charged with child enticement and additional counts of felony bail jumping.
At the time of his arrest, Huffman was free on bond through Portage County for similar charges.
A Winnebago County judge set bail at $1 million cash.
Police say they began their investigation in the early morning hours of Friday, May 19, 2023 when the Winnebago County Dispatch Center received a 911 call from a juvenile stating he was taken from an address in Appleton and was currently at an unknown hotel in a Hyundai and needed help.
Dispatchers were able to obtain GPS locations from the juvenile’s cell phone.
Officers arrived in the area and saw the vehicle leaving that matched the description that the juvenile had given them.
Officers performed a high-risk traffic stop on the suspected vehicle, and while doing so, the juvenile immediately got out of the car and ran back to officers, according to a news release.
Huffman is expected back in court June 19.
