CRYSTAL LAKE – A 19-year-old Crystal Lake man has been charged with abusing a family or household member, police said.

Authorities charged Cleveland L. Wiggins IV on April 30 with aggravated criminal sexual assault, a Class 2 felony, and criminal sexual abuse, a Class A misdemeanor.

The alleged victim is younger than 17 years old and is either a family or household member, Cmdr. Dan Dziewior said. Dziewior would not release more details to protect the identity of the alleged victim, including the victim’s age, gender or relationship to Wiggins.

Wiggins is set to appear in court Thursday.

He was released from McHenry County Jail Tuesday after posting 10 percent of his $50,000 bond, or $5,000.
