Police in  Mercer County say a 15 year-old girl who had run away from a group home in Meadville was found this week in Greenville — in bed with a 22 year-old transient who now faces sex charges and other counts in the incident.

Police in the Greenville area say the man’s identity was revealed by the girl’s mother, who lives in the Cleveland area.  22 year-old Ronald Williams was arrested and charged after he allegedly broke into a vacant house in Greenville, and was eventually discovered there with the runaway.

The girl has been returned to the Meadville facility where she had been assigned to stay by court order.

Williams was arraigned on charges including burglary, trespassing, two sex counts, interfering with the custody of a child and interfering with the custody of a committed person.  He was sent to the Mercer County Jail in lieu of bond.
