    A Delaware County man has been arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a teen boy he was tutoring.

    Investigators with the Special Victims Unit say an 18-year-old man accused 27-year-old Alexander Brengle of Wayne, Pa. of sexually assaulting him several times in 2009.

    The alleged victim told police he was 14 years old at the time and was being tutored by Brengle.

    The teen claimed Brengle visited him at his parents’ home in Rittenhouse Square and tutored him in Latin. Over a two-month span, Brengle allegedly sexually assaulted the boy and also gave him alcohol as well as the drug Klonopin.

    Brengle was arrested on Thursday after the alleged victim contacted police. He is charged with unlawful contact with a minor, sexual assault, solicitation of minors to traffic drugs, corruption of minors and other related offenses.

    Brengle was released on Friday after posting 10 percent of $50,000 bail. He is scheduled for a preliminary hearing on May 1.

    Police are also investigating whether there are other victims out there.
