| June 8, 2015

SUGARCREEK BOROUGH, Pa. (EYT) – Following an investigation by Sugarcreek Borough Police, a 21-year-old man faces charges of incest and indecent assault.

According to a criminal complaint, a juvenile victim reported to CYS, as well as a forensic interviewer, that she had been sexually assaulted by 21-year-old Danny Lee Malone, Jr., of Butler.

The complaint indicates that the victim was unable to recount the exact date in which the alleged assault had taken place but was able to narrow it to a time frame of either the 2010 or 2011 school year, while school was in session.

The victim allegedly reported that Malone had sexual intercourse with her while at a residence in Venango County, the complaint continues.

With this information, Officer Ashbaugh, of Sugarcreek Borough Police Department, interviewed Malone who allegedly admitted to having sexual intercourse with the victim, according to the complaint.

Malone “was not able to narrow the time span, however, he feels that (it) would have had to have occurred while he was under 18,” the complaint states.

Through the course of investigation into this incident, Officer Ashbaugh, believes that probable cause exists to substantiate the following charges:

  • Incest, Felony 2
  • Indecent Assault-W/O Cons Of Other, Misdemeanor 2

Magisterial District Judge Patrick E. Lowrey has been assigned the case.

Malone awaits a preliminary hearing.
