York County woman accused of sexually assaulting teens


DOVER, Pa. (WHTM) — A York County woman accused of sexually assaulting two teenagers and sexting a third has been arraigned.

The York Dispatch reports Lauren Thomas was arraigned on Wednesday. The victims were between the ages of 15 and 16.

Reports say Thomas was a cheerleading coach with Dover Eagles Youth Football.

Police never said what school district the victims went to but during the arraignment, a judge ordered her to not contact anyone in the Dover Area School District or go to any school events.

Lauren Thomas is the wife of West York Police Officer Ryan Thomas, who was the assistant coach for Dover Area High School’s football program for part of the 2019 season.

Police say Ryan Thomas was not involved in his wife’s alleged crimes.

The Dover Youth Football Association Board said in a statement:

“As the safety and security of our athletes is our top priority, we are appalled with the charges that were brought against one of our former volunteers. Lauren Thomas was a volunteer with our cheerleading program and resigned in September of the 2019 season. As required by law, she provided all appropriate clearances to the DYFA organization. We have already contacted local law enforcement to help in the ongoing investigation in any way possible. We look forward to appropriate justice being served.”
