DOVER — A Somersworth man is being accused of sexually assaulting a 4-year-old girl in front of his 9-year-old daughter.
On the night of June 25, Christopher Elwell, 28, of Somersworth allegedly put his "peep" in the mouth of a 4-year-old girl while she was at a sleepover in Dover along with her younger sibling, the children who lived in the home, and Elwell's 9-year-old daughter. According to the affidavit, Elwell was prohibited from being on the property.
When the girl's mother picked up her daughter the next morning, her daughter said that Elwell "put his 'peep' in her mouth." The mother told police that she and her daughter use the word "peep" to describe private parts, in this case, Elwell's penis.
After speaking to the rest of the children, they all gave a "similar story of 'Chris' sleeping in the bed with them, and all of them being under the covers," the affidavit states. The 4-year-old also said that there were "nakey" photos on Elwell's phone and "that they were tickling each other." Elwell's daughter later indicated that Elwell was using his phone to watch "private videos" (pornography), the affidavit states.
According to police, another 4-year-old, disclosed that Elwell "put his tongue" in the girl. Elwell's daughter also disclosed that "daddy put his thing" in the girl's mouth.
The affidavit states that Elwell admitted to staying in the prohibited location with the three girls and watching pornography with the 4-year-old and that she asked to see his "pee-pod" and to try what was depicted in the video. Elwell then said that she did see and touch his privates with her hand, the affidavit states.
A cash only bail has been set for $50,000.
Elwell is a registered sex offender. He was convicted in 2008 of two count of felonious sexual assault on a teenager younger than 16. He also has an extensive criminal history that includes theft, criminal mischief and failure to register.
