Pennsylvania man charged with sex assault as child

BENSALEM, PA (AP) - A 20-year-old eastern Pennsylvania man has been charged with molesting a 6-year-old girl when he was just a child himself.

The Bucks County Courier Times ( ) reports that Raymen Arango of Bensalem was arraigned Friday on a felony sexual assault charge and released on bond.

He is accused of sexual assaulting the girl beginning in 2005, when he was just 11. Police say Arango had sex and performed other acts with the girl until 2007.

A Bensalem detective inherited the investigation from a retired officer in February and interviewed the girl, who is now 15. Police say they located Arango in August and that he confessed and wrote a letter apologizing to the girl.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Arango, who faces a preliminary hearing Nov. 6. A working telephone number for him couldn't be located.
