A Dover Township man remains in York County Prison, accused of sexually or indecently assaulting four underage girls, some for at least a year.

And the investigation is ongoing.

Northern York County Regional Police are awaiting the results of forensic examinations performed on two girls, ages 4 and 6, according to charging documents filed Nov. 25 against Brody Barrett Kline.

Kline, 42, is charged with the felonies of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child, aggravated indecent assault of a child, aggravated indecent assault of a child less than 13 and three counts of felony corruption of minors, according to court records.

He's also charged with misdemeanors — four counts of indecent assault of a child less than 13, one count of indecent assault of a child less than 16, indecent exposure and four counts of misdemeanor corruption of minors.

Charging documents allege Kline: exposed his penis to a 9-year-old and forced her to touch it; exposed his penis to a 10-year-old and rubbed it against her leg; touched and licked the vagina of an 11-year-old; and rubbed the vagina of a 14-year-old.

Police began investigating in October, after the mother of the girls called police to say she found semen in her 4-year-old daughter's underwear, documents state.

A witness overheard the mother confront Kline and reported that he admitted that the semen was his, charging documents allege.

Investigators spoke with the children, who said Kline had been indecently touching or sexually assaulting them for more than a year, documents allege.

Two of the girls told their mother about a year ago, police said. Their mother confronted Kline at the time and assumed that telling him to stop would be sufficient to end the alleged abuse, according to charging documents.

Police maintain it wasn't.

It is unclear as of Thursday whether Kline has retained an attorney.

Kline's preliminary hearing before District Judge David Eshbach is scheduled for Dec. 22, according to court records.
