Police have arrested a man they say sexually assaulted a teenage girl in Bensalem.

Calvin Bridges, 20, of Philadelphia, allegedly met the 14-year-old at the Neshaminy Mall in February, then communicated with her over social media.

He then got her to agree to meet this past Sunday, police say, then sexually assaulted her in the woods behind the Neshaminy Plaza Shopping Center.

"Unfortunately I think there are other victims out there. This is not the first time, I'm sure, he has done this," said Bensalem Public Safety Director Fred Harran.

He didn't have much to say when he was questioned about the allegations.

"It is very surreal for me right now. I don't know what to say, you guys are overwhelming me right now," Bridges said. "I didn't know she was 14."

"This is one animal that is off the streets and hopefully won't be attacking anybody else in Bucks County or Philadelphia," Harran said.

If you know of any more possible victims, you are urged to contact Bensalem Police at 215-633-3719.
