On Thursday, Wheeling Park High School senior, Cody Brautigam was arrested at the school’s campus for allegations that he sexually assaulted two girls younger than 10 years old. He was booked into the Northern Regional Jail in Moundsville on two counts of first-degree sexual assault and two counts of first-degree sexual abuse. He is being held on $100,000 bond.
The Wheeling Intelligencer reported:
According to a police report, a 9-year-old girl told a sexual assault counselor earlier this month that Brautigam engaged in sexual behavior with her at the girl’s home in July. The girl said Brautigam illegally touched and kissed her, sometimes while both were undressed, according to the report.
The following day, an 8-year-old girl told the counselor that Brautigam on multiple occasions pulled her by her hair into a room, where he sexually assaulted her. Those alleged crimes occurred around the same time as those involving Brautigam’s other accuser, the police report states.
What is going on in the valley? This is just crazy! In less than a month, three separate incidents involving teens. Three weeks ago a second rape allegation was filed with the police department involving a 14-year old, and September 24th the arrest of two Steubenville High School football players who were charged with rape and kidnapping.
