ACSO seeks information on Elkhart indecency with a child suspect

ANDERSON CO., May 16, 2014—The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office is seeking information on a suspect wanted in connection with a case of indecency with a child.

The suspect, John Curtis, age 70, of Elkhart, is accused of attempting to force himself on a 13 year-old boy. The victim was able to get away, and a report was made to the Sheriff’s Office on May 3, at which time an investigation began.

Search and Arrest warrants were served at the suspect’s residence, but Curtis was not home, and law enforcement officials have been unable to locate him.

According to Anderson County Sheriff Greg Taylor, there may be additional victims. The suspect routinely hired young boys to do chores around his home.

Anyone with information about this case or the whereabouts of Curtis is urged to call Anderson County Crime Stoppers at 903-729-8477. Callers do not have to give their name and all calls remain confidential. Callers may be eligible for a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information which leads to an arrest.
