Woman tells police of sexual abuse over 10-year span

— A 24-year-old Joplin woman reported to Joplin police on Wednesday that she was sexually abused by a man over a 10-year period.

Police Lt. Matt Stewart said the woman reported that the abuse began when she was 12 and living in another state and continued when she moved to Joplin at the age of 16. She told police that it did not end until she turned 22.

Stewart said her allegations remained under investigation Thursday without an arrest having been made.
