Poulsbo man arrested for child molestation

Steve Anthony Colon faces charges of second-degree child molestation

Steve Anthony Colon, 37, of Poulsbo, was arrested Oct. 23 and is facing charges of second-degree child molestation.

According to court documents, officers at Poulsbo City Hall were approached by family members of Colon’s claiming that Colon had touched one family member inappropriately the night before.

The victim told investigators that she had been asleep, laying on her stomach when she awoke to discover Colon touching her inappropriately. The victim also told the interviewer that the incident had not been the first time such an incident had happened.

Colon has a history of no-contact order violations, domestic violence charges, and a Child Protective Services referral for his son, in which it is alleged that he used corporal punishment.

Colon was arraigned at a hearing Oct. 24 where he entered a plea of “not guilty” to one count of second-degree child molestation. The court declined to sign a Fifth Amendment Order which would allow Colon to possess firearms.

An attorney status and firearm compliance hearing is set for Nov. 7 at 9 a.m. with an omnibus hearing set for Nov.14 and a full trial set for Dec. 16.
