CLEARFIELD — A Clearfield man was charged Thursday with sexually abusing a teenage girl that he provided beer to.

Rollison Jr Alpen, 27, is charged in 2nd District Court with object rape, a first-degree felony, two counts of forcible sexual abuse, a second-degree felony, and three counts of providing alcohol to a minor, a class A misdemeanor.

On Aug. 30, a 14-year-old girl and two friends were at Jacobsen Park in Clearfield where police say Alpen provided them with beer. The girl became intoxicated and Alpen inappropriately touched her, according to charging documents.

One of the girl’s friends told Alpen to go away. The girl later fell asleep on a park bench but awoke to Alpen sexually abusing her, the charges state.

“She told him to stop but he would not,” according to the charges.

When interviewed by police, “Rollinson disclosed he was intoxicated and could not recall if that happened,” according to a police affidavit.
