MARATHON COUNTY, Wis. — Raymond Hoelzer, the sex offender found engaging in suspicious behavior in Klode Park in July, was taken into custody in the Village of Elderon in Marathon County on Tuesday.

Whitefish Bay Police received an anonymous tip on Tuesday that the 56-year-old registered sex offender was staying with a subject in Elderon, according to the department.

On July 25, the Village of Whitefish Bay alerted residents of Hoelzer's suspicious behavior at Klode Park. He was approached and interviewed by police, but was let go when there were no warrants for his arrest. It was only after the interview ended that they checked the sex registry.

Hoelzer violated the Whitefish Bay sex offender ordinance.

According to court access, Hoelzer was arrested in 1995 for repeated acts of sexual assault of the same child.

Hoelzer was arrested for violating the sex registry in 2008. He was also arrested in 2014 for having a job where he works with children.
