WARRIORS MARK, HUNTINGDON COUNTY, Pennsylvania (WTAJ) – A man from Huntingdon County is behind bars after police say they have sexually assaulted a girl for many years.

According to the police, Richard Bartel, 43, started the assault when the girl was 13 years old.

She says that they have gotten worse with age.

We were told that the victim, having become an adult, had reported the violence because she feared that he would do the same with another girl.

Bartel initially denied the allegations, before eventually admitting certain sexual acts when the victim was 16 years old.

Bartel faces 16 counts of felony including rape and indecent assault.
