A man who allegedly made videos of himself saying he wanted to have sexual relations with children, and who allegedly appeared on and near school grounds, has been arrested on a disorderly conduct charge, according to local police.
Tyler V. Bronstad, 22, of Chetek, was arrested by the Chetek Police Department and the Barron County Sheriff’s Department on Wednesday, afternoon, June 2. He was charged in Barron County Circuit Court on Thursday, June 3.
The Chetek Police Department said officers had received multiple calls on Wednesday, June 2, about a man making “disturbing videos referencing young children.” The CPD had also received multiple phone calls about the man allegedly being near Roselawn Elementary School in Chetek. In May, he was allegedly at the school playground several times before being told to leave by staff, according to the criminal complaint.
Bronstad was being held in the Barron County Jail. If released on bond, conditions would include he not go within two blocks of Roselawn Elementary.
The case remains under investigation by the Chetek Police Department and further charges may be filed, said CPD Lt. Jessica Larson.
