Newspaper delivery driver charged with sexual assault

Posted: Updated:

NEW CASTLE, Pa. - A man is facing a number of charges after state police say he assaulted two teenage brothers who helped him prepare to deliver newspapers.

Pennsylvania State Police say unspeakable crimes against the brothers went on for months at the New Castle rental property of a newspaper delivery driver.

David Plohr, 43, is charged with statutory sexual assault. 

According to the New Castle News, Plohr used to deliver newspapers for the newspaper as an independent contractor. 

Neighbors say, earlier this month, officers showed up at Plohr's home armed with a search warrant and cameras.

According to the criminal complaint, they seized several bottles of wine coolers, pornographic DVDs and magazines.

In the complaint, one of the victims described how Plohr would regularly walk up and grab him, then ask, "Do you want me to take care of this?"

Investigators said he did admit to touching one of the boys while they were both inside his delivery truck.

Police reports also indicate that Plohr was an independent contractor for the Vindicator. However,  The Vindicator's circulation director says that's not the case. They do not yet know what relationship, if any, Plohr has with them but he may be helping one of their carrier's deliver papers.
