Sex abuse investigation continues in Mount Washington

By Caton Bredar

LOUISVILLE (WAVE) -- The investigation continues into the alleged sexual abuse of two Mount Washington teenagers by a woman who managed a baseball concession stand. WAVE 3's Caton Bredar reports on the latest.

Stephanie Evans was working at the concession stand when she was arrested Wednesday, but police don't believe her work at the ballpark has much to do with the case. The Bullitt County woman was arrested Wednesday night at the Mount Washington ball park behind the elementary school.

Police say two teenagers came forward claiming she assaulted them nearly a year ago. The victims were 13 and 14 at the time the crimes allegedly occurred.

The location of the arrest, according to police and youth league officials, was just coincidence.

"We're not involved directly. We're just ... it's just an unfortunate accusation of someone that is our concession manager here, and a very hard worker," said league president Scott Johnson.

Officials say they have no control over what goes on outside the park, but say that Evans never gave them any reason for concern. They say they are co-operating with the investigation.

Mount Washington Police confirmed that detectives in Georgetown, Kentucky are also participating in the investigation, but wouldn't offer any details.

Evans has been charged with two counts of sodomy and one count of second- degree sexual abuse. She is being held in the Bullitt County Detention Center on a $10,000 cash bond.
