Dudley man accused of rape now faces flashing charge

Posted May 19, 2010

— A Dudley man charged last week with sexually assaulting an 11-year-old also has been charged with flashing a 14-year-old girl, authorities said Wednesday.

Norman Joseph Horn, 29, of 100 Verbena Lane, was charged with indecent exposure. Authorities said he was in his back yard and exposed himself to the teen as she walked down the street to her school bus.

Horn has been held in the Wayne County Detention Center under a $1 million bond since his arrest a week ago on a charge of first-degree rape of a child under age 13. Authorities said Horn knows the family of the alleged victim.

    While he is locked up..give him a haircut..knowing the other inmates locked up aint going to like his charges..so there might be some justice before he reaches the courtroom.

    Clearly he mentally ill. They need to lock him up and lose the key.

    Well, I am guessing that the flashing was probably done before he assaulted the 11-year-old and maybe the 14-year-old was too scared to come forward, but decided to now since she knows he is in jail and can not harm her. Just my guess.

    Officials needs to get this man off the streets for a while. Seems like he is too dangerous to society to be on our streets freely.
