A Hagerstown man charged earlier this month with breaking into and vandalizing his former apartment was back in Washington County District Court Monday, accused this time of raping a preteen girl.
Ryan Lee Kleckner, 30, of 10806 Rosewood Drive, was being held without bond on charges of first- and second-degree rape, second-degree sex offense, indecent exposure and indecent assault. District Judge Ralph H. France II ordered Kleckner to remain in jail without bond following a bail-review hearing Monday.
Kleckner is accused of sexually assaulting the girl on Aug. 23, according to the statement of probable cause filed by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office. The girl was interviewed Friday by a protective services investigator with the Safe Place Child Advocacy Center, the document said.
The girl told investigators that Kleckner raped her in the basement of his house, the charging document said. She told investigators that Kleckner was choking her and covered her mouth with his hand to keep her from screaming during the assault, the document said.
