CONFLUENCE, Pa., May 6 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania man was arrested for allegedly kidnapping and sexually assaulting a 6-year-old boy, police said.

Brian Timothy Lynch, 45, and an unnamed 17-year-old allegedly kidnapped the victim Saturday afternoon in Confluence, Pa., about 85 miles southeast of Pittsburgh. The child was playing alone outside when he was taken. When the boy's father returned a short while later, he found his son missing and called police.

Lynch took the child and teen to his apartment in nearby Henry Clay Township where they played video games, police said. He then took the two for ice cream and a walk on a bike trail. While on the walk, the child tried escaping and Lynch caught and spanked the child, then brought him back to the car where he allegedly raped the child, police said.

After that, Lynch brought the child to a park late Saturday or early Sunday and left him there unattended. Police located the child around 1:55 a.m. Sunday, the Herald-Standard of Uniontown, Pa., said Monday.

Lynch was charged with rape, kidnapping, unlawful restraint and other sex assault-related crimes. He is being held in lieu of $250,000 cash bail at Fayette County Prison.

Police have not said whether the teenager will be charged.
