Pa. man charged with abducting, raping boy, 6

LATROBE, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man has been accused of abducting 6-year-old boy from his yard, raping him and then abandoning him in a park late at night.

Police say 45-year-old Brian Timothy Lynch, of Confluence, was arrested Sunday and is facing two counts of kidnapping, rape and other charges.

Authorities say the boy was playing in his yard about 55 miles southeast of Pittsburgh on Saturday when Lynch allegedly abducted him. They say he then played video games at his apartment with the boy, raped him in his car and finally left him near a park in Latrobe, about 35 miles from his home. Police found the boy there around 2 a.m. Sunday.

Lynch is being held in the Fayette County jail. No attorney is listed on court papers. Police say he confessed.
