Man jailed for child sex assaults

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – A Franklin County man jailed without bail on charges he sexually assaulted two young girls eight years ago.

State police charged 44-year-old Richard Paul Patrick with multiple indecent assault and child rape charges.

Authorities say the two 14-year-old girls claim Patrick assaulted them in early 2008 in Chambersburg and State Line.

Patrick, of Chambersburg and McConnellsburg, was arrested and charged yesterday.  Bail was declined because authorities believe he’s a threat to society and a flight risk.

A preliminary hearing has been set for Nov. 29.
