Cops: Trevose Firefighter Charged with Rape, Possession of Child Porn

A 20-year-old volunteer with the Trevose Fire Company has been charged with rape and possession child pornography.

Paul Delp III, police say forced a woman to have vaginal intercourse  and perform oral sex with him on the second floor of a Trevose Fire Company station, in August.

The victim, court documents say, told Delp to stop, but he continued to the assault , by pinning her down on a couch and holding her mouth so she couldn’t scream.

The woman told police she left the firehouse in tears  and reported the alleged rape to a friend.

The victim went to a local medical facility, after speaking to authorities, for a forensic sexual assault exam in which she told medical personnel she was also bruised from the sexual assault.

Bensalem investigators sought and were approved for a “text takeover” with Delp,  posing as the victim during exchanges.

Delp, according to the probable cause affidavit, promised he would never do it again, as long as the victim “called off the cops right now.” Delp also asked the detective, posing as the victim to call police and tell them the rape never happened, suggesting she also tell her mother she using the bathroom at the firehouse.

On September 21 Police interviewed Delp in a non-custodial meeting detectives wrote in court documents, where he apologized for going a little too far at the firehouse. Delp admitted to police he has recorded his conversations with the victim on his cellphone.

Police allege they discovered the pornographic images of  children engaged in sex related acts on Delp’s cellphone after he consented to allow police to extract data from it. 20 images were discovered during a forensic review of data and phone memory, including images of children that appear to be under the age of 5.

Delp is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on October, 30, and is free after posting 10 % of $75,000 bail.
