HARRISVILLE — State police Monday arrested Joshua K. VanWeort, 17, of 12942 Route 812, on charges of first-degree sexual abuse, a felony, and acting in a manner injurious to a child under age 17, a misdemeanor.

Because the alleged victim is less than 11 years old, Mr. VanWeort was charged in the first degree, a class D felony.

Police said the alleged incident occurred at the residence. He was arrested at 4:25 p.m. Monday and released to a third party. No additional information has been provided.
