Police in Cumberland County are asking for the public's help in finding a York City man wanted for allegedly raping two girls over a period of several years.

Upper Allen Township Police on Tuesday named Jordan Assan O'Berry as one of their most-wanted fugitives. Police obtained a warrant for his arrest on April 24, records state.

O'Berry, 22, is wanted on charges including rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, unlawful contact with minors, indecent assault and corruption of minors.

He is accused of sexually assaulting two girls without their consent over a period of several years, Upper Allen Detective Sgt. Tom Kauffman said.

Both girls were less than 15 years old when the assaults began, according to the detective.

"He has caused a lot of heartache for several people," Kauffman said.

The detective began investigating in March, after the girls came forward, he said.

"I'm quite sure he's aware the case is being investigated, but he may not know about the warrant yet," Kauffman said.

Drove into crowd: O'Berry made news in November 2010 when Northern York County Regional Police arrested him for driving directly at a Dover Township home and into a crowd of people gathered outside.

O'Berry drove into the crowd after co-defendant Dwayne Lameak Taylor fired a 9mm handgun inside the Wyatt Circle home during a party on Sept. 18, 2010, police have said. No one was hurt.

O'Berry later pleaded no contest to charges including simple assault and was sentenced to three to 23 months in York County Prison.

Anyone with information on O'Berry's whereabouts is asked to call the 24-hour non-emergency number for Cumberland County 911, (717) 238-9676, or call Upper Allen Township Police at (717) 795-2445.
