Hudson Valley Man Charged With 6 Counts of Rape
A Hudson Valley man was arrested for the third time in a little over a month. Police believe there are more victims.
On Monday, the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Office reported the arrest of 40-year-old Tyson Kreig of Red Hook for multiple counts of rape and other offenses in connection with an ongoing investigation by Sheriff’s Office Detectives
Mr. Kreig was arrested at his residence on Monday and has been charged with the following:
- Two counts of Rape 1 st degree
- One count of Attempted Rape 1 st degree
- Four counts of Rape 3 rd degree
- One count of Sex Abuse 1 st degree
- One count of Criminal Sexual Act 1 st degree
All charges are felonies and are the results of multiple victims coming forward
and filing complaints with the Sheriff’s Office, police say.
"At this time no further information about the victims, the number of victims, or the circumstances surrounding the cases will be released in order to protect the victims’ privacy and safeguard future court proceedings," the Dutchess County Sheriff's Office stated.
Kreig was arraigned before the Town of Red Hook Court and remanded to the Dutchess County Jail in lieu of $10,000 cash bail or
$20,000 bond for each victim.
This marks the third time Krieg has been arrested as police investigated allegations of sexual misconduct. He was charged earlier this month with forcible touching and unlawful imprisonment.
In January, Kreig was arrested after a week-long investigation into an allegation of inappropriate sexual conduct. Kreig was accused of subjecting the victim to sexual contact without their consent. He was charged with sexual misconduct, which is a misdemeanor.
More information about any of the alleged victims hasn't been released.
