Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — A Lockport teen has been charged in connection with the sexual assault of a Newfane youth.

Also Thursday, state police leveled single charges of fourth-degree criminal mischief and second-degree harassment against Person in connection with a March 27 incident in the Town of Lockport. Troopers responded to a complaint of a fight in progress at 6557 Lincoln Place and, after an investigation, accused Person of beginning the verbal and physical altercation with another male, which caused damage to a wall in the apartment building hallway.

Person was arraigned in Lockport Town Court and was ordered held on combined bail of $3,000. He's due to answer the sex charges in Newfane Town Court on May 6 and the mischief and harassment charges in Lockport court on May 8.
