Man accused of spiking boy's juice box, assault


A 27-year-old Blaine man has been charged with criminal sexual conduct as police investigate allegations that he put something in an 8-year-old's juice box and then inappropriately touched the child, WCCO and the Pioneer Press reported.

The child was vomiting and dizzy after his mother picked him up on New Year's Day from the home of the man who has been charged, Steven Howard Olson, who had been babysitting the child. The boy said he had fallen asleep after Olson "did something" to his juice box and awoke to Olson touching and pinching him inappropriately, according to the reports.

Investigators found seven juice boxes at Olson's home, the Pioneer Press reported. Olson was charged Jan. 4, the newspaper said.
