Nye County Sheriff’s detectives arrested a man on Thursday for sexual assault of a female relative under the age of 14.
Nicholas Isaacks was arrested in Pahrump and charged with three counts of sexual assault of a minor under the age of 14.
Sheriff’s detectives interviewed the alleged victim who described the numerous assaults and the locations. However, the initial arrest and charges were for an alleged offense that happened Oct. 27 at approximately 3 p.m.
According to the arrest report, detectives learned the alleged sexual assaults began when the victim was approximately nine or 10 years of age. The victim explained that she would live with her mother part-time in Pahrump during the school year and move back to her father’s during the summer break.
The victim gave the detective graphic descriptions of the alleged assaults. She reportedly told detectives that the instances usually took place in the pool or when she wanted to play video games. The victim explained to detectives that Isaacks would “make” her do what he wanted. The victim described a “fort” inside the apartment where the alleged abuse took place as well as a camper trailer.
Detectives subsequently interviewed the victim’s step-mother on Aug. 12, who reportedly told detectives that the victim told her the incidents with Isaacks took place at least 10 times. The victim’s father told detectives the same day he found out about the incidents around Aug. 6 after the victim allegedly told her sister and her sister told her parents.
The victim’s sister reportedly told detectives that when the victim was approximately 9 or 10 years old, Isaacks would only allow the victim to play video games if she complied with his sexual requests.
Detectives attempted to make contact with Isaacks on Oct. 30 at an address on Luella Court but there was no response. Detectives subsequently located a phone number for a Konni Isaacks and made contact with her. She subsequently agreed to bring Isaacks to their offices for an interview.
When questioned about the allegations, Isaacks reportedly denied everything and agreed to submit to a physical exam that was scheduled for Nov. 3 at approximately 10 a.m.
However, on Nov. 3 detectives received a phone call from attorney Michael Hughes stating he would be representing Isaacks and Isaacks would not be submitting to an exam and no longer cooperating with the investigation.
Detectives subsequently applied for and were granted a search warrant by Judge Ron Kent.
Konni Isaacks was contacted by detectives to arrange a meeting. When detectives responded to the residence, they advised Konni and Isaacks that they had a search warrant to take digital photographs within the residence and on the property.
Detectives found a “fort” within the residence that matched the description given by the victim. Detectives also located a travel trailer on the property that matched the victim’s description as well.
Isaacks was subsequently arrested on Nov. 6 and transported to the Nye County Detention Center and booked on three counts of sexual assault with a minor under 14.
A phone call to the jail revealed that Isaacks was released on $100,000 bail Nov. 7. His next court date was not available.
