Chrystopher Thompson charged in December incident involving 16-year-old

TOWAMENCIN TOWNSHIP, Pa. - Twenty-two-year-old Chrystopher Darrell Thompson of Ambler was arrested Saturday on indecent assault charges stemming from an incident that happened in December in Towamencin Township, Montgomery County.

Thompson has been charged with aggravated indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor, corruption of a minor, indecent assault and simple assault.

After being arraigned, Thompson was committed to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in lieu of $75,000 bail.

Shortly after 10 p.m. Dec. 17, Towamencin Township police was summoned to the 1500 block of Franklin Street in the township for a disturbance call.

Several people were at the residence and police heard yelling and screaming inside.

They located a 16-year-old girl who was visibly upset and said Thompson inappropriately had touched her.

Police were told Thompson had been kissing the girl's mother on a bed. The girl was seated on the same bed, partially covered with a blanket, when Thompson reached under the blanket and assaulted her with his hand. 

The mother observed movement under the blanket and immediately confronted Thompson.

  He stopped what he was doing and left before police arrived at the house.

A warrant for Thompson's arrest was issued Friday, after Towamencin Township police completed their investigation into the incident.

On Saturday, Ambler police arrested Thompson, who lived in the 200 block of E. Park Avenue in the borough, and turned him over to Towamencin police.
