Latrobe man accused by troopers of sexually assaulting 12-year-old girl

September 27, 2018

State police this week charged a 23-year-old Latrobe man with allegedly fondling a 12-year-old girl at the victim’s home in Derry Township late last year.

Zacharia J. Clark is charged with corruption of minors and indecent assault in connection with the incident that occurred last Dec. 17. Court papers were filed Wednesday.

Clark was charged after the victim reported the incident to an abuse hotline. The victim told officers during an interview that Clark had been smoking marijuana and groped her as she was sleeping.

Clark’s preliminary hearing is scheduled Sept. 26 before Derry District Judge Mark Bilik.
