On September 11, 2020, at approximately 10 PM Sidney Police Units were dispatched to the 800 block of Arrowhead Drive in regards to a fight in progress. Upon arrival to the area patrol officers discovered a male subject in the area of the 600 block of Mohican. This male subject was bloody and appeared to have been involved in a physical altercation. The subject was transported to Wilson Health for treatment. He was later identified as Bradley Stangel, age 30, address at large.
Investigation has revealed that earlier in the evening Stangel was involved in a physical altercation with another male subject at an apartment located at 805 Arrowhead Drive. The altercation started when the other male subject believed that Stangel had sexually abused a female juvenile family member. Subsequently facts and evidence were processed by investigators that tend to indicate that Stangel did commit a sex act upon a female minor under the age of 10. As a result Bradley Stangel was charged with one count of Gross Sexual Imposition, a felony of the 3rd degree and was incarcerated in the Shelby County Jail.
All the facts and circumstances surrounding the actions of both Stangel and the other male subject are being reviewed by the Shelby County Prosecutor’s Office to determine if other charges on either man are warranted.
