Sheboygan man faces charges for alleged sex assaults

A Sheboygan man currently in jail for allegedly sexually abusing a child now faces additional, similar charges and a $150,000 bail.

Sheboygan police say Semir Mahmutagic, 19, used the threat of violence to sexually assault multiple underage partners. He was originally charged in October with intentionally causing bodily harm to a child, strangulation and suffocation, and four counts of sexual contact with a child age 15.

Homelessness manifested in many ways

With Thanksgiving around the corner, one local organization is launching an effort to help the homeless.

The Lakeshore Action Program consists of agencies in Sheboygan, Manitowoc, Door and Kewaunee counties. The nonprofit organization works with individuals and families through various programs, including housing assistance. Leaders of Lakeshore CAP (Community Action Program) say they’re now expanding throughout the communities on a campaign to raise awareness in local shops and establishments.
