31-year-old Jefferson County man accused of sexually assault four children


Brookville, PA – A Jefferson County man is in jail after being accused of sexually assaulting four juveniles over multiple years.

According to court documents, the charges against 31-year-old Andrew Ryan Powell came on Wednesday when Brookville Borough Police were called to Euclid Avenue for a report of the sexual assault of a minor child.

During the interview process, Powell reportedly admitted to sexually assaulting four minor children.

He allegedly said that it had happened with three of the children one or two times since 2014 and with a fourth child one or two times a month within the past couple of months.

Powell faces felony charges of rape of a child, statutory sexual assault, unlawful contact with a minor, and more.

Unable to post $100,000 bail, he remains lodged in the Jefferson County Jail.

There is no word yet on when his preliminary hearing will be.
