A Harrisburg man raped two girls under the age of 5 and uploaded dozens of photos and videos of the assaults to the Internet, police said in court papers charging the man with 115 offenses.
Isaiah J. Metz, 22, is charged with 112 felonies and three misdemeanors for crimes authorities said he committed in July 2021 in York County.
Metz was monitoring one of the victims on July 24, 2021, while her sister was on her way to a doctor’s appointment, according to a probable cause affidavit.
After the family returned from the doctor’s office, the girl from Metz who looked after the children was acting noticeably more emotionally than usual. During bath time the next day, the girl told her parents that her vagina hurt, according to court documents.
Police said they took DNA samples from a pair of underwear, as well as from the Metz recliner and which the girl was lying on when the girl said the assault took place. Investigators were unable to rule out that the recovered DNA came from Metz, according to court documents.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children later told investigators that Metz had uploaded photos and videos of himself sexually assaulting the two girls. Forty-two photos and eight videos of the girls were found on the Samsung Galaxy in Metz last February, according to the affidavit.
Metz faces 115 charges, including rape, involuntary deviant sex, aggravated indecent assault, corruption of minors, photographing/recording child sexual abuse and child pornography.
Bail information was not immediately available through Metz’s online court records. A preliminary hearing has not yet been scheduled.
