BOISE -- A Star man is in the Ada County Jail after being arrested on sex abuse of a minor and lewd conduct charges.

Michael James Angus, 67, was arrested around noon on Friday at his home on Verdant Place, north of Star.

Detectives investigating last week someone reported that Angus had sexual contact with an elementary-aged girl at his house in late October.

As detectives continued to investigate, they identified another victim, also an elementary-aged girl. Officials believe that during the period of a year to a year and a half, Angus inappropriately touched the young female many times.

Angus is being held on a $1 million dollar bond and is scheduled to be arraigned in district court on Monday afternoon.

Detectives are asking for the community's help to identify other possible victims, after receiving information that Angus has had access to many young children and spent time with children on multiple occasions. Including visits which were supervised and unsupervised by other adults.

Anyone who has information about the children who have been in Angus' care or who may have had contact with him are asked to call Ada County Sheriff's Office non-emergency dispatch at 377-3790 or Crime Stoppers at 343-COPS.
