Man charged with sexual abuse



A Marshalltown man has been arrested for sexual abuse-third degree, according to Marshalltown Police Department and Marshall County District Court records. Terry Lee Matlock, 48, was taken into custody and later transported to Marshall County Jail earlier this week. Capt. Brian Batterson of the MPD said the victim contacted police in June of last year alleging the defendant sexually assaulted her when she was incapacitated and not able to consent. The assault took place during a party in the 900 block of E. Anson Street. DNA and other evidence was submitted to the state crime lab. Results recently came back linking the defendant’s DNA to the submitted sample. The defendant remains in jail.
