UNIONTOWN (KDKA) — State police in Fayette County say they have charged three people in the alleged sexual abuse of a 15-year-old boy and a 10-year-old girl over several years.

According to state police, the alleged incidents happened between 2003 to 2011 in Menallen Township and other places in Fayette County.

Elmer Plum, 70, of Uniontown, Dawn Bryner, 35, of Hibbs, and Joshua Wolfe, 29, of New Salem, are facing a long list of charges in connection with the case.

“What these children went through is something no kid should ever experience … in their life,” state trooper Heather Clem said.

State police say they have charged Plum with rape and sexual assault in cases involving the teenage boy, and aggravated indecent assault in cases involving the girl, as well as indecent assault and corruption of minors in cases involving both victims.

Child, Youth and Family services say they were tipped off to the assaults by the 15-year-old boy who called to turn himself in for molesting his 10-year-old sister, saying he couldn’t take it anymore and that he needed help. A 5-year-old and 6-year-old living in the home were also molested.

The teen is also charged and is currently in a juvenile detention facility.

Bryner is charged with statutory sexual assault, incest of a minor and indecent assault in cases involving the boy.

And, Wolfe is facing charges of aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault and corruption of minors in cases involving the girl.

Plum, Bryner and Wolfe have been arraigned and their bail was set at $250,000 cash each.

All three are being held in the Fayette County Prison.

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled for March 27.

State police continue to investigate.
