(Harrisburg) -- A youth leader at a Dauphin County church is behind bars charged with having sexual contact with a girl over the last three years, starting when she was 12.
Twenty-six-year-old Joshua Markelwitz was arrested Friday on charges including rape of a child and aggravated indecent assault. Investigators say some of the sexual contact happened at the Lower Paxton Township church where Markelwitz met the girl.
The Enola man is being held on $750,000 bail. Court records don't list an attorney for him.
Police say the church is cooperating with the investigation. Authorities say they're trying to determine if there are other victims.
