Indecent assault, other charges for Philly cop found in hotel with teen

    A Philadelphia Police officer faces numerous charges after being found Wednesday in a Bensalem hotel with a teenage girl and another female.

    According to a Courier Times report, Anthony Dattilo offered the teen and the other woman $100 each to have sex with him. Police reports indicate the teenager watched the pair have sex, and was being fondled by Dattilo before authorities arrived.
    Charges include aggravated indecent assault, unlawful contact or communication with a minor, criminal use of a communication facility, indecent assault without consent, indecent assault, corruption of minors, promoting prostitution of a minor and promoting and patronizing prostitution.

    The three drove to the hotel from North Philadelphia, with the teen texting family members to say she was being held against her will.
