A weekend disturbance at an area campground has resulted in the arrest of an Oelwein couple.


Fayette County deputies were sent out at about 6:45pm Saturday (Aug. 11) to the campground at Gilbertson Park, outside of Elgin. An investigation determined that two people were involved in a domestic abuse incident.

27 year old Amber Stewart was subsequently charged with Simple Domestic Abuse Assault.

Deputies were also informed that there was a separate case of sexual abuse that happened earlier in the afternoon at the campground. The incident was reported by the victim and a witness.

Following that investigation, deputies arrested 28 year old Taylor Stewart of Oelwein, charging him with 3rd Degree Sexual Abuse, and Public Intoxication.

Both Stewarts were taken to the Fayette County jail, and held until their initial court appearance.
