More charges for man accused of sexual assault


BRUCE - A man suspected of sexually assaulting area young boys now faces more charges.

Dennis Hess, who's from Bruce, is now charged with sexually assaulting a second boy. Investigators in Altoona say he told them the assaults started when he was around age 11, and continued for several years.

The boy said he never reported it because he knew Hess's other alleged victim, and that nothing happened to Hess when that boy first reported being assaulted many years ago.

Altoona police have said they believe there are numerous potential victims in northwestern Wisconsin, and are asking anyone with information to contact them. Hess is in jail under $50,000 bond.
