A Westmoreland County judge has found an Export man guilty of three charges related to a sexual assault last summer at a Unity woman's apartment.

President Judge John Blahovec ruled Monday that David Bankosh, 39, was guilty of attempted involuntary deviate sexual intercourse and two counts of indecent assault.

Following a nonjury trial, the judge ruled that Bankosh attacked the woman, now 20, on June 21. Bankosh had been installing carpeting outside the woman's apartment before the assault.

Blahovec on Tuesday ordered Bankosh's bond to be revoked.

Blahovec issued an arrest warrant for Bankosh yesterday. The judge ruled Bankosh should be detained in the county jail until the completion of a sexual offender assessment and his sentencing.
