Man charged after abuse investigation

Olean police have arrested an Olean man on allegations of physically abusing his mentally and physically disabled adult stepdaughter. 

Ronald L. “Ronnie” Miller, 59, of 1526 Martin St., was charged at 1:33 p.m. Wednesday with first-degree endangering the welfare of an incompetent or physically disabled person, a class E felony; and third-degree assault, a class A misdemeanor. 

Explaining the charges Thursday afternoon, Olean Police Capt. Robert Blovsky said investigators believe Miller lost his temper while trying to calm his “severely disabled” 27-year-old stepdaughter between 2 and 3 a.m. Monday, allegedly hitting her with his hand and causing “serious bruising” to her buttocks. Man charged after abuse investigation - Olean Times Herald: News - Man charged after abuse investigation: News:
