Police: Man arrested for years of child sexual assault in Hanover Township


HANOVER TOWNSHIP, LUZERNE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU)- Hanover Township Police have arrested a man after two young girls came forward alleging years of sexual assault.

Police say Carlos Hazard, 36, of Warrior Run, had been abusing the two girls since they were between the ages of seven and eight.

One victim told police that one of the first times she had inappropriate contact with Hazard, he put her and the other victim in the shower and “peeked in” on them.

Police say that one of the victims detailed that Hazard would touch her backside while hugging her and would force her to perform lewd acts on him.

One of the victims told officers that until she was 12, she would have to perform lewd acts on him, usually once to twice a day and sometimes he would “give her a day off.”

Police say that both victims said Hazard would put on pornographic videos and make the girls take turns performing lewd acts on him.

According to police, one of the victims said that if she wanted something from the store Hazard would only buy it for her if she performed lewd acts on him.

Both girls recently came forward with their statements of abuse, police say.

Hazard is charged with rape of a child and related charges.
