The man charged with first-degree sexual assault of a three-year-old child will face an initial appearance in Door County Circuit Court Monday morning. Robert Gerdeen, 64, of Sturgeon Bay faces three felony charges including child enticement with sexual contact and exposing intimate parts to a child. According to a Sturgeon Bay Police criminal complaint, Gerdeen was arrested on February 3 after police responded to a call of a sexual assault. At a bond hearing last Tuesday, a cash bond was set at $15,000 for Gerdeen. He can not have any contact with the victim or the victim’s family and anyone under the age of 18. The initial court appearance begins at 10 AM Monday.
