Posted April 16, 2019 14:23:37A man who appeared on the show ‘Kellie’s Kitchen’ in January has been arrested after he allegedly raped a 13-year-old girl, police said Tuesday.
Jakob Johansson, 46, of the village of Upland, was arrested Tuesday afternoon by the Uplands Police Department after he appeared on a show about a family of “Kellies” who live in the remote village.
He faces charges of sexual battery, aggravated assault and other offenses, police wrote in a news release.
The arrest comes days after the arrest of a man who allegedly sexually assaulted a 14-yearold girl at the same restaurant in the same state.
It was not immediately clear if he was in custody or on probation.
In January, a 14 year-old alleged that Johansson had touched her in the backseat of his vehicle, then drove her home.
The girl later told her mother about the alleged assault, but no one reported it to police until the next day, when a woman called police and said she had seen Johansson in her vehicle.
Johansson, of Uppal, is the husband of an employee at the restaurant, and the couple have a 10-year old son together.
He has no prior criminal history.
