UPDATE @ 3:19 p.m. (Oct. 11):

Sgt. Larry Cornett, of Clearcreek Twp. police, said after James Almon was arrested on single counts of rape, weapons under disability, and providing alcohol to an underage person, a 2014 rape case was re-opened involving a different juvenile known to Almon.

Almon on Friday was indicted for another 15 counts of rape; five counts gross sexual imposition; and one count importuning. That child is now 15 and claims the assaults date back to 2014.

Almon will appear in Warren County Common Pleas Court Wednesday.

UPDATE @ 4:50 p.m. (Oct. 10):

The official indictment released by the Warren Co. Prosecutor’s Office states Almon had sexual contact with at least two different victims, and with force.

We know from Clearcreek Twp. police that one victim is an 18-year-old girl, a girlfriend of a family member, whom Almon allegedly gave alcohol, then raped inside his truck outside his home on Lytle Five Points Rd.

The second victim is a young female child and the alleged sexual assault occurred approximately one year ago, according to police.

According to the indictment the sexual assaults occurred between July 2014 and September of 2016.
