CALEDONIA — A 29-year-old man from St. Johnsbury who is currently incarcerated is facing more charges, police say.

Justin Maloney was cited for sexual assault of a child, and lewd and lascivious conduct with a child following an investigation that began in February of this year.

Detectives with the State police began looking into allegations that Maloney assaulted a 5-year-old victim in Orleans in 2020.

During the investigation, a second victim was identified who made allegations of being assaulted in Lyndonville during a similar timeframe.

Police say the second victim would have been 7-years-old at the time.

Maloney, who is currently lodged at the Northeastern Vermont Correctional Complex on unrelated charges, was cited to appear in both Caledonia and Orleans Counties to answer to the charges.
