Allegheny County Sheriff deputies arrested a Brackenridge man inside an Arnold apartment for allegedly sexually abusing an 8-year-old girl.

Brandon Cargile, 32, was found in an attic of an apartment in an alleyway garage along the 1700 block of Woodmont Avenue, according to an Allegheny County Sheriff's Department statement. He was arrested without incident.

Cargile had appeared in the sheriff's department “most wanted” web page.He was taken to the Allegheny County Jail without bond to await arraignment on the new charges.

The authorities are alleging that in June the girl told an adult that Cargile exposed himself to her and took her pants off. Deputies allege she was able to stave off an assault when she “retreated” to her mother.

Cargile is charged with criminal attempt of involuntary deviate sexual intercourse with a child, illegal contact with a minor, indecent assault, indecent exposure, endangering the welfare of a child and corruption of minors.

Court records show Cargile was on probation at the time for drug sales in Tarentum and domestic violence in Brackenridge.

His probation was suspended in August because of the latest charges, and police have been looking for him since.

Last year, he was charged with scuffling with another inmate in a Westmoreland County holding cell.

He has previously been sentenced for other offenses including selling drugs in Arnold, criminal trespass and recklessly endangering another person in Allegheny County, and carrying a handgun without a license in Wilkinsburg.
