Dayton man arrested for rape of young girl

DAYTON – A 26-year-old Dayton man was arrested Wednesday by State Police for allegedly sexually molesting a young girl in this area at least once during the summer of 2015.

Joseph Tyler Jr. of State Route 62 was remanded to the Cattaraugus County Jail in lieu of $1,000 bail after he pleaded not guilty in Perrysburg Town Court to second-degree rape and endangering the welfare of a minor. His arrest earlier Wednesday came after an investigation by the State Police.
