    An Ellwood City man, suspicious of his neighbor’s relationship with a 12 year old girl, checked the state’s Megan’s Law list and discovered the man was a registered sex offender. Shortly after the neighbor reported the perpetrator to the local police, the victim disclosed that Samuel Edward Ross, 46, had assaulted her. The AP reported that the girl’s parents knew that Ross had a criminal record but were unaware it was for molesting a 13-year-old New Castle girl in 2003.
