Megan’s Law offender charged in Carbondale

CARBONDALE – Police allege that a 32-year-old sex offender held a teen girl in her room and flashed her with his genitals.

Tito Guzman, of Carbondale, is charged with unlawful restraint, indecent assault, indecent exposure and four counts of corruption of minors.

According to an affidavit:

Guzman, a level three sex offender out of New York state and a registered sex offender with the Pennsylvania State Police, kept the girl locked in a bedroom. He often slept in the same bed and “would be so close that she could feel him breathing on her neck,” according to interviews with the victim conducted on April 7.

He allegedly woke her up in the middle of the night by putting his foot in her mouth and made the teen watch pornography with him on his computer. She also claimed he would change clothes in front of her while aroused.

Guzman was arraigned April 11 on the charges and held for a lack of $250,000 bail. A preliminary hearing is set for April 18.
