A Warren man already behind bars on disturbing sexual offense charges faces allegations that he raped a young girl repeatedly over a period of five years.

Thomas Glenn Anthony, Jr., 51, was charged by City of Warren Police on Friday with statutory sexual assault, rape forcible compulsion, aggravated indecent assault, indecent assault and other charges.

Police alleged in the affidavit of probable cause that an interview was conducted on Sept. 15 with a known female regarding sexual abuse allegations.

The victim told police that Anthony “had sex with the victim from the age of 13 to 18 years old, would touch the victim’s genitalia and make her undress and be naked in front of him.”

She further states that Anthony “forcibly touched her genitalia multiple times. The victim said she remembered she tried to push (Anthony) away but he held her hands and continued the act.”

Anthony was before District Justice Raymond Zydonik on Friday on the new charges was held on $75,000 bail.

A preliminary hearing has been scheduled in the matter for October 9 at 1 p.m.

In a separate case, Anthony faces charges of conspiracy (rape threat of forcible compulsion), criminal solicitation (rape threat of forcible compulsion), criminal solicitation (sexual assault), criminal solicitation (aggravated indecent assault – threat of forcible compulsion), criminal solicitation (incest), criminal solicitation (indecent assault threat forcible compulsion), two counts of terroristic threats and two counts of simple assault.

According to the affidavit, the two alleged victims were forced by Anthony to have sexual intercourse. Police said the two victims are related to each other by blood.

The alleged victim told police Anthony struck both of them after forcing them to have intercourse, causing injury to the face and mouth as well as loss of consciousness to one.

According to the affidavit, Anthony watched, and did not participate in, the intercourse.

He pled not guilty to those charges last week.

Online court records indicate that the Warren County Public Defender’s Office has filed a motion to modify bail on Anthony’s behalf. That motion is slated to be argued on September 27 at 9:30 a.m.

Anthony is being held in the Warren County Jail on the initial charges on $100,000 bail.
