Police: Newberry Township man sexually assaulted teen
A Newberry Township man sexually assaulted a girl who was 15 years old at the time, police allege.
Carlos Alberto Funes Coreas, 30, is charged with felony aggravated indecent assault and corruption of minors. He is also charged with indecent assault without consent, a misdemeanor.
Newberry Township Police were alerted to the incident on March 29 through York County Children, Youth & Families.
The victim told a mandated reporter that Funes Coreas sexually assaulted her several times in 2017, police allege.
The first time Funes Coreas assaulted the victim, she was asleep in her bed when he laid in the bed next to her and grabbed her waist and chest. The victim "froze in shock" and told police she was caught off guard, police said.
Funes Coreas, who was drunk at the time of the assault, kissed the 15-year-old and groped her in the groin area. As he started to take off his underwear, the victim shoved Funes Coreas off the bed, police allege.
The victim told police that Funes Coreas drank every day, according to charging documents.
In an interview with police in May, Funes Coreas said he used to drink a case of beer after work each day, police said.
In a second assault which took place about a week after the first one, Funes Coreas laid in bed with the victim and rubbed his hands through her hair. He apologized to the victim for how he treated her, and admitted to loving her, police allege.
Funes Coreas was drunk during this incident, according to Newberry Township Police.
When interviewed by police, Funes Coreas said that he was informed of the allegations and only recalls waking up in his own bed, police said.
He also said that he did not remember ever touching or groping the victim, police added.
Funes Coreas was arrested Monday and is being held in York County Prison with bail set at $125,000, according to online court records. His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Nov. 4 before District Judge Scott Gross.
