For the past few months detectives from the Rockford Police Department’s Sensitive Crimes Unit have been investigating a reported incident of child abuse which occurred at a residence in the 200 block of North Central Avenue. The investigation was reviewed by the Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office. As a result, charges were authorized and a warrant was obtained for the suspect, 25-year-old Randall Koontz of Rockford.
On Tuesday, August 29, 2017, Randall Koontz was arrested and lodged in the Winnebago County Jail.
ARRESTED: Randall Koontz 25-years-old Rockford, IL
CHARGES: Aggravated Battery to a Child (victim under 13 years old)
BOND: $10,000 / 10%
The charges against Koontz are merely accusations and not evidence of his guilt. As with defendants in all criminal cases Koontz is considered innocent unless proven guilty in court.
Due to the sensitive nature of this incident and the age of the victim no further information is available
