WINCHESTER — A 46-year-old man accused of molesting an underage girl and a man suspected of cutting another man with a knife were among the people indicted by a Winchester grand jury on Nov. 19.

The molestation accusations date back to 2011. That’s when police said the girl, now 26, contacted them about Elmer Mauricio Amaya-Orellana. She said he’d been abusing her since she was a sixth-grader, according to Detective Charles C. Barlow’s criminal complaint. She said the last abuse occurred in 2008 or 2009.

Barlow said Amaya-Orellana agreed in 2011 to come to the police department for an interview, but he left the country. He was arrested in Winchester in June and has been charged with 12 counts of aggravated sexual battery.

The knife incident occurred on April 21 in the 100 block of South Kent Street, according to Detective Jonathan D. Dixon’s criminal complaint. Robert Lee said a man, later identified as Jason Edward Egan, pushed him down and stood over him with a knife while threatening to kill him. Lee said after Egan walked away, he realized he’d been cut in the chest.

Dixon said when he interviewed Lee on April 24, he saw a six-inch, stitched cut on the left side of Lee’s chest. A day later, Dixon interviewed Egan. He said Egan admitted to pulling a knife on Lee and threatening him, but he said he didn’t intentionally cut him. Egan, 39, of the 500 block of Gray Avenue in Winchester, was charged with unlawful wounding.
