Fight call leads to child rape charges against 1 combatant

Posted: Updated:

HAZLETON, Pa. (AP) - Police say a Pennsylvania man caught his friend in the act of raping the man's 6-year-old son.

Hazleton police arrested 19-year-old Sebastian Wardingo on child rape and other charges after police answered a fight call at a home Saturday night.

Police say Wardingo and the alleged victim's father were fighting. They later learned why: The boy's father told police he walked into a room and saw Wardingo pulling up his pants and the boy on a bed with his pants down.

Police say Wardingo eventually acknowledged raping the boy.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Wardingo, who remained in the Luzerne County jail on Monday. He faces a preliminary hearing June 28.
