Port Allegany Man Jailed for
Sexually Abusing 5-Year-Old Boy

A 44-year-old Port Allegany man, who is already a convicted sex offender, is accused of sexually abusing a 5-year-old boy.

Police say Charles Kontz was left alone with the child on the afternoon of January 31 when the sexual assault happened. The boy’s grandmother told police she has seen significant changes in the little boy since the incident, including his fear of men and wetting the bed, according to papers filed in District Judge Bill Todd’s office. According to court papers Kontz was alone with the child for 10 to 15 minutes.

Kontz is charged with indecent assault, endangering the welfare of a child, corruption of minors and unlawful contact with a minor.

Kontz is in McKean County Jail on $25,000 bail.

He was convicted in 2003 for indecent assault of a child.
