Alleged: Bruce Charles Englar
Bruce Charles Englar, 53, of North Codorus Township, is charged with felony burglary for entering a building with the intention of committing a crime, namely, having sexual intercourse with a sheep.
The Property Owner told Northern York County Regional Police he peered in the barn window and saw a man assaulting a sheep, according to an arrest affidavit filed in District Justice Gerald Shoemaker's office.
Officer Patrick Gartrell of Northern Regional Police was patrolling nearby when 911 dispatched him to the Pattersons' home. He heard the farmer yelling in the barn, telling someone to stop. The officer ran toward a man dressed in black and ordered him to stop and put up his hands.
"I found baler's twine in Englar's back pocket, matching the twine that was hanging in the barn," Gartrell wrote in the affidavit.
Police allege the twine was to be used to secure the sheep for sexual intercourse.
Duty District Justice Nancy Edie also arraigned Englar by video camera on charges of criminal attempt to have sex with an animal, criminal trespass, possessing the instruments of crime and loitering and prowling at night.
Englar had parked his car several hundred feet south of the Property Owners' home, jumped over a fence surrounding the barn and walked in, according to the affidavit.
Englar posted $10,000 bail Tuesday for his release from the York County Prison, a spokeswoman said.
