A Butler County man already accused of molesting one child is now accused of sexually assaulting an infant almost a decade ago.

Stephen Gary Batchelder, 33, of Butler, is accused of assaulting the 6-month-old girl between November 2002 and March 2003 at a home in Center Township, state police said Wednesday.

Batchhelder was charged in August with sexually assaulting a child under the age of 13 in Butler Township, court records show. A preliminary hearing in that case is scheduled next week. He remains jailed in lieu of bond.

Troopers are trying to determine if Batchelder is suspected of molesting any other children.
