Man Charged With Second Sexual Assault On Teen Girl

Kym Gable reporting

ARMSTRONG COUNTY (KDKA) — An Armstrong County man is behind bars again on sexual assault charges after allegedly targeting the same young girl from his first arrest back in April.

Police say 41-year-old Gregory Shaffer of Kittanning faces five counts including sexual assault and unlawful contact with minors.

Back in April, police took Shaffer to jail for having illegal custody of a 15-year-old girl.

He posted bond and was awaiting trial, but investigators say, earlier this month, he contacted her on Facebook and in person, making graphic and disturbing comments about what he wanted to do to her.

Former neighbors say Shaffer moved out of his apartment weeks ago.

They say police had been canvassing the neighborhood with guns drawn, looking for him.

He was arrested June 12.
