OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) — The Omaha Police Department (OPD) arrested a 65-year-old man on multiple felony sexual assault charges. Steven Danon is alleged to have assaulted underage victims who were middle school friends with his son.

The police report also states that one alleged victim died as an adult from a drug overdose, which the police are connecting to childhood trauma.

3 News Now is publishing the mugshot of the suspect in this case because OPD believes there may be other victims and that he might have had access to other children. The police urge anyone with information to contact the Omaha Police Department at (402) 444-5636.
