Dubuque Man Accused of Touching Kids

A Dubuque man is facing charges after police say he sexually abused three children under the age of 12. Police say they were notified about the allegations surrounding 67 year old Dennis Topping in late April. An 8 year old girl told her parents that she would sit on Topping’s lap while at his home, and that’s when he would touch her. Court documents say the girl told investigators it had been happening since late 2017. Court records say Topping admitted to the girl’s father about the inappropriate touching. Topping said it was only “light rubbing.” He also admitted touching a 4 year old and another 8 year old. Authorities did not say what their relationship was to Topping. He is charged with three counts of second degree sexual abuse and three counts of lascivious acts with a child. Topping was being held in the Dubuque County jail.
