Child abuse arrest in Coarsegold

Child abuse arrest in Coarsegold

A man, suspected of child abuse, was arrested in the Yosemite Lakes area of Coarsegold, a forested area between Madera and Oakhurst, south of the famous Yosemite Valley.

According to an official media report released by the Madera County Department of Corrections, Andrew Owen Olsen, 28, was arrested by the Madera Sheriff’s Department on a felony charge of inflicting corporal injury on a child. He was arrested and booked early on Tuesday, May 21. The victim’s identity was not released, though Olsen reportedly has one young son.

Previous arrest records show that Olsen, while living in Sacramento, was arrested on February 18 by Sacramento Police and charged with DUI, driving on a suspended license, public intoxication, and having an excessive blood alcohol level. He was arrested where he was living at the time, in a group of small homes on Branch Street in North Sacramento. Prior to that, in March of 2014 while living in Coarsegold at the same address he is currently reporting, he was charged with DUI and driving on a suspended license.

Earlier court records show that Olsen, a reported laborer, was arrested in 2013 for disorderly conduct and being drunk in public. And after bail of $50,000 was set for his latest arrest, Olsen was arrested once again over this last weekend, on Saturday May 30, for the same charges. Olsen’s Facebook profile shows that he is in construction and remodeling, and is also a tattoo artist.
