A Rockford man is wanted on charges of sexual assault to a child. On November 14, 2018 the Rockford Police Department received a report of an alleged sexual assault of a child, under the age of 13, by a male family member which had occurred at a residence in the 2900 block of Chatham Lane.
Detectives from the Sensitive Crimes Unit conducted a follow-up investigation. The Winnebago County State’s Attorney’s Office reviewed the case, authorized charges and a warrant was obtained for the suspect, 35-year-old Charles Jones. The warrant has not been served, and Jones is still at large.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect’s location is asked to contact the Rockford Police Department at 815-966-2900 or Rockford Area Crime Stoppers at 815-963-7867.
The charges against Jones are merely accusations and not evidence of his guilt. As with defendants in all criminal cases, Jones is considered innocent unless proven guilty in court.
