Pennsylvania man rapes friend's 15-year-old daughter during stay over following Halloween trip to haunted house
SOMERSET COUNTY, PENNSYLVANIA: A Martinsburg man allegedly sexually assaulted a minor teenager in Somerset County over the weekend. 36-year-old Chadrick R. Magee waited for an opportunity to be alone with the 15-year-old girl after a trip to a haunted house with her and her family Saturday night, according to charges filed by state police. According to WTAJ, Magee and the girl's father were friends and co-workers. After the haunted house visit, Magee and another family member were invited to stay over at the girl's Somerset Township residence, state police said. Magee was allegedly drinking alcohol before the alleged assault, which took place after others had left the room, they added.
During his first interrogation Monday morning, Magee told authorities it was the girl who had followed him to the bathroom and that he told her “he couldn’t do this, that she is 15." He said he left immediately after. But during a second conversation with state police, Magee allegedly said he remembered going to the bathroom when the girl was there alone and kissing her. He said he didn't remember "anything else that happened on the couch" where the sexual assault allegedly took place, WTAJ reported.
Magee was subsequently arrested and charged with felony counts of rape, statutory sexual assault, aggravated indecent assault by forcible compulsion, and aggravated indecent assault of a person less than 16 years of age, along with a misdemeanor count of corruption of minors.
Magee is currently remanded in custody at Somerset County Jail in lieu of a $25,000 cash bail set by Magisterial District Judge Kenneth W. Johnson. He is due to appear in court for a preliminary hearing on October 27.
Earlier this month, MEAWW reported how a ten-month-old baby died after her own father allegedly raped her and waited for an hour before calling the authorities on Saturday, October 3. The suspect, identified as Austin Stevens, 29, allegedly raped Zara Scruggs before calling 911 for help. Stevens was arrested on charges of aggravated sexual assault, rape of a child, involuntary deviant sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault, endangering the welfare of a child, and other criminal counts.
A press release from the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office mentioned that Lower Providence police officers arrived at a home in the 3400 block of Germantown Road at around 10:40 pm after receiving information about an unresponsive child. Shortly after their arrival, they performed CPR on the little girl before shifting her to Einstein Medical Center, where she died at 12:12 am on Sunday, October 4.
Cops searched Stevens' apartment, where they found the toddler’s diaper which she was wearing during the alleged rape. The press release from the Montgomery County District Attorney's Office said: “The diaper was saturated with blood.” While an autopsy conducted on the dead child revealed that she sustained anal rectal trauma and blunt force trauma to the head. “This case is deeply disturbing. It is hard to imagine this child’s death being any more traumatic: sexual assault on an infant, followed by inaction by the father to save her life, led to her death,” Montgomery County District Attorney Kevin Steele.
