Clearfield County Man Charged with Sexual Assault Again


CLEARFIELD – A Clearfield County man, who has a 25-year history of facing sexual assault allegations, was charged last week for attacking a preteen girl in 2018.

Clearfield Regional Police say they arrested 59-year-old Tom Custred of Houtzdale following a two-month investigation of the latest accusations. A Clearfield girl, who was 12 years old at the time, claimed that Custred sexually assaulted her using a hairbrush.

Court records show that Custred was arrested in 2004 for the alleged rape of a teen girl multiple times in 1999. Custred is being held in the Clearfield County Jail with bail set at $150,000.

His preliminary hearing is scheduled for Wednesday.
