from The Derrick:

A 66-year-old Oil City man was charged Monday with sexually assaulting 6- and 10-year-old girls at a downtown Oil City apartment complex.

Oil City police said Walter McCauley allegedly performed sexual acts on both girls and made them perform acts on him at his home in Seneca Court.

McCauley faces 13 felony charges — including counts of aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault and endangering the welfare of a child — and 10 misdemeanors, according to court documents.

Police said the charges stem from a month-long investigation into the case.

According to a criminal complaint filed before District Judge Douglas Dinberg, one of the girls described the assaults to Venango County Children and Youth Services (CYS) workers.

McCauley later admitted to police and CYS workers he performed sex acts on one of the girls about four times during the last year at his home in the apartment complex on Seneca Street, according to the complaint.

He also told officials he exposed himself to the second girl and made her expose herself to him on one occasion at the home, the papers said.

McCauley was charged with four felony counts of aggravated indecent assault and indecent assault and five felony counts of endangering the welfare of a child.

He was also charged with five misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure and corruption of minors, according to court papers.

McCauley was arraigned before Dinberg Monday morning and was placed in Venango County jail on $50,000 bail.

Police said anyone with information on the case or anyone whose children may have had contact with McCauley can contact the Oil City Police Department.
