30-year-old man accused of sexually assaulting 2 young sisters



Independence County, Arkansas – Following a sexually assaulting of two young girls, Independence County sheriff’s deputies arrested an Oil Trough man. The victim’s mother reported the alleged abuse on June 2, according to court documents.

A 30-year-old Steven Thomaspeter Ledlow was a family friend who had been staying at their home, the victims’ mother told investigators.

According to the victims, who are both under the age of 12, the acts occurred while they were asleep or separated.

Lieutenant Zach Rawlins stated the acts of sexual abuse described by the sisters were “consistent.”

After reviewing the case, on June 7, a judge found probable cause existed to charge Ledlow with two counts of second-degree sexual assault and issued a warrant for his arrest.

Ledlow is being held in the Independence County Detention Center on a $30,000 bond awaiting his first appearance in circuit court.
