Dawson man accused of sexually assaulting 5-year-old girl

Tuesday, March 26, 2013, 12:01 a.m.
 

A Fayette County man was charged last week with sexually assaulting a 5-year-old girl.

David Stewart, 48, of Dawson faces two counts of aggravated indecent assault, two counts of indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor and corruption of minors.

Stewart allegedly touched the private parts of a girl he was baby-sitting sometime last summer, state police in Belle Vernon said. He also removed her clothing for no legitimate reason, police said.

Stewart was arraigned on Wednesday by District Judge Dwight Shaner. He is lodged in the Fayette County Jail after failing to post $25,000 bond.
