An Oswego man is facing several sexual abuse charges stemming from a relationship he developed with a 16-year-old girl. 

According to Oswego Police spokeswoman Cathy Nevara, Daniel Tondu, 55, of the 200 block of Bluegrass Parkway, was arrested Thursday after a three-month investigation that began in May of this year. 

The investigation began when the girl's parents informed police of several text messages that were exchanged between the two. During the investigation, police discovered that the texts were of a sexual nature and that Tondu had asked the girl to perform sexual acts. Police also discovered that the two did have sexual contact at Tondu's home. 

Nevara would not say how the two knew each other, but did confirm that the public is not at risk.

The Kendall County State’s Attorney’s Office approved seven felony charges against Tondu on Wednesday, and a warrant was issued for his arrest. Those charges are:

  • Two Counts of Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse (Class 2 felony)
  • Two Counts of Attempt Aggravated Criminal Sexual Abuse (Class 3 felony)
  • Two Counts of Indecent Solicitation of a Child (Class 3 felony)
  • Grooming (Class 4 felony) 
Tondu turned himself into Oswego Police on Thursday. He was released after posting 10 percent of a $100,000 bond.  

A court date has been set for Sept. 8.
