York man accused of sexually assaulting young girl

York police charged Terry Lee Glenn, 40, with with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor.

A York man accused of sexually assaulting an underage girl several years ago moved to Connecticut and then to North Carolina before police found him living in Florence and arrested him on Wednesday, police say.

Last year, a 24-year-old mother reported to police that she had just learned her daughter, 8, had been sexually assaulted by Terry Lee Glenn, 40, about four years earlier, according to a York Police report.

The mother explained that her daughter claims Glenn, who once lived on Hall Street in York, put his hand in her pants and inappropriately touched her, the report states.

The mother waited to report the incident because she knew there was a warrant for her arrest and she was afraid police would arrest her if she met with them about the incident.

It’s unclear for what charges the girl’s mother was wanted.

Police and the State Law Enforcement Division began tracking Glenn, who they learned moved to Connecticut, said York Police Lt. Rich Caddell.

Glenn then went to Cleveland County, N.C., before he and his wife settled in Florence.

Caddell said he drove to Florence on Wednesday, charged Glenn with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor and took Glenn into custody.

Glenn was being held Thursday at the York County Detention Center without bond. He also is being held for another agency because he is wanted for a parole violation in Connecticut, Caddell said.
