Horse Trainer At Parx Racing Charged With Indecent Assault

By Brad Segall

BENSALEM, Pa. (CBS) — Bensalem police say an investigation provided enough details to charge a leading horse trainer at Parx Racing in Bucks County with indecent assault in connection with an incident that allegedly happened last month.

Police say a female employee at the Street Road racetrack came forward about 10 days after the alleged assault. She told police that Juan Carlos Guerrero cornered her in an office and then kissed and inappropriately touched her without her permission.

Bensalem Public Safety Director Fred Harran says the 41-year-old married father of two from Williamstown, New Jersey is facing a misdemeanor count of indecent assault and believes there may be more victims.

“You know, you don’t want a guy like this out and about using his position to assault people because you don’t know where he’s going to graduate to … how far he’s going to go,” Harran said.

According to the Paulick Report, a website that follows the thoroughbred industry, Guerrero is having his best year ever with 145 wins and earnings of more than $3.3 million.

Police say media calls have come in from as far away as Kentucky.

    Tell me again why this country needs ugly macho squat monsters again?

    Wow I wasn’t aware it was legal to spread accusations before the guy has even appeared in court. This is America, innocent until proven guilty, lots of women see a man that has money any they try to falsely accuse them so they can get paid. This sounds way to fishy to me

    I know Carlos personally and know he would never touch anybody in that manner. All that he is concerned with are his horses. He loves the sport and is 100& dedicated to those animals. With all the accusations that people have made about this person and that person, maybe they are caught up in all the hype. Carlos would never do something like that. I have known him for over 2 years and have enjoyed his company as a professional and a person.

      Betcha ten bucks that you’re dead wrong.

  • Big deal!

    I’m frequently “assaulted” by my boss with attempted kisses and inappropriate touching. Suck it up and be lucky you have a job.
