More Sex Assault Accusations Against Bensalem Teen
By Brad Segall
BENSALEM, Pa. (CBS) — The criminal case against an alleged teenage serial rapist in Bucks County continues to grow.
Bensalem police say another woman has come forward to say she was sexually assaulted by Josh Benson.
Police say that attack occurred in 2011, when Benson, now 18, was still a juvenile.
Benson has now been charged in connection with eight sexual assaults of teenage girls — six while he was a juvenile and two while he was an adult (see previous story).
After Benson’s preliminary arraignment on Thursday, Bensalem police sergeant Andy Aninsman expressed the department’s concern about yet more victims that have yet to be found.
“If you see this and your gut is wrenching as to what happened to you, pick up the phone and call Bensalem police,” he advises possible victims, “and we’ll make sure that we do everything in our power to make sure that you get justice.”
Police say Benson met some of the girls on an online dating web site.
A hearing is scheduled for next week in Doylestown, where prosecutors are expected to ask a judge to move the juvenile cases to adult court.
