| December 7, 2017

FRANKLIN, Pa. (EYT) – A 46-year-old Oil City man accused of having inappropriate sexual contact with a teenager was held for court Wednesday on two misdemeanor charges.

According to court documents, the following charges against Matthew R. Bialo were held for court during a preliminary hearing Wednesday afternoon in Venango County Central Court:

– Corruption of Minors, Misdemeanor 1
– Indecent Assault without Consent Of Other, Misdemeanor 2

Court documents indicate that a subpoena was hand-delivered to Bialo on November 30.

According to a criminal complaint filed by Oil City Police Patrolman Robert Culp, Bialo is accused of subjecting a known 16-year-old female to unwanted sexual contact.

The incident allegedly occurred sometime between 9:30 p.m. on November 11 and 1:30 a.m. on November 12.

During an interview with police, the victim stated that Bialo placed his hand on her genitals, the complaint indicates.

The victim then left the room and did not return, according to the criminal complaint.

The criminal complaint states that Bialo told police “he had done nothing wrong and had no contact with the minor.”

Bialo was taken into custody and transported to the Oil City Police Department.

“While being placed into the holding cell, without provocation, (Bialo) stated that he had been drinking that night and could not recall anything that happened,” said Patrolman Culp in the criminal complaint.

According to the criminal complaint, Bialo told police he “had no idea” why he was being arrested.

Bialo was released from the Venango County Jail on November 30 after a $1,500.00 private surety was posted (10% of the $15,000.00 monetary bail ordered).
