CHARTIERS TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A couple accused of preying on teenage girls is facing new charges.

Chartiers Township police said Bates and his girlfriend, Kimberly Campbell, sexually assaulted young teenage girls inside the Railroad Street home.

Since Channel 11’s Cara Sapida’s report two weeks ago, a third girl came forward, police said.

Bates and Campbell were arraigned on the new charges Wednesday.

The victims include a 13-year-old, 16-year-old and 19-year-old with a mental disability, police said.

When officers arrived to arrest the couple two weeks ago, Bates needed an ambulance.

“He came down the steps.  He had a blanket wrapped around him, and we noticed blood on his hands.  As the blanket opened up, they saw a wound in his abdomen,” said Police Chief James Horvath.

On Wednesday, Sapida asked about his wound.  He had no comment.

The couple is expected to be back in court next Wednesday.
