A Carbon County man was jailed this week, charged with sexually assaulting a woman.
State police at Lehighton said George Thomas Anger, 47, of Lehighton, was arrested on Tuesday on charges of aggravated indecent assault and related counts. He was arraigned before District Judge Bruce Appleton, Palmerton, who set bail at $50,000, percentage.
Anger was unable to post the 10 percent and was remanded to the county prison in Nesquehoning. A preliminary hearing is tentatively set for Sept. 29 at 11:15 a.m. before Appleton.
According to troopers on Sunday, Sept. 19, about 4 p.m. Anger and the victim, identified as a 39-year-old woman from Lehighton, were at a community center. They left the center together with Anger driving her home.

She suffered no injuries in the assault, troopers said.
