[ARCHIVED] Police Arrest Gouldsboro Man for Sexual Assault

HONESDALE -- Investigators believe a Gouldsboro man arrested Sept. 21 for sexual assault may have other victims who have not come forward.

Wayne County District Attorney Patrick Robinson said Leonides Jesus Collado, 29, has been charged with misdemeanor counts of indecent assault, stalking and disorderly conduct. In the affidavit of probable cause, Lehigh Township Police Officer Steven Price says a victim contacted the department to report she was sexually assaulted by Collado at the Burger King in Gouldsboro, while the two were both employees of the fast food restaurant.

The victim reported that Collado showed her a video of his genitals and of him masturbating. He also forcibly placed the victim’s hand on his genitals. At one point, Collado blocked the victim into a corner, groped her buttocks and attempted to kiss her. Before he left, he groped the victim’s buttocks again. All of these actions took place against the victim’s will and without her consent.

Investigators have reason to believe that there are other victims so if you or anyone you know has been victimized by Collado, please contact the Lehigh Township Police Department at (570) 842-0434 or the Wayne County Detectives at (570) 253-5970, extension 2255.
