Genoa man held on sex assault charges

SYCAMORE – A DeKalb County judge set bond at $500,000 Friday for a Genoa man who prosecutors said had inappropriate contact with a 4-year-old girl.

Stuart B. Diaz, 38, of the 31100 block of Madison Street, was charged Thursday with two counts of predatory criminal sexual assault, which is punishable by as many as 30 years in prison.

DeKalb County Sheriff’s investigators began looking into the allegations of sexual abuse by Diaz in October, according to a news release from the Sheriff’s office.

The alleged abuse occurred between July 2011 and October 2013, court records show.

Diaz was in jail Friday, and would have to post $50,000 to be released. He has requested a bond reduction and his next court date is set for Wednesday.
