Police: Arrest made in molestation of miniature horse in Delaware

CAMDEN, Del. (AP) -- Delaware State Police say they have charged a suspect in the sexual assault of a miniature horse and a subsequent burglary at the same barn several weeks later.

Authorities said Tuesday that 45-year-old Adelio Guzman of Camden was released on $11,750 bond after surrendering Friday. It was not immediately known if he has a lawyer.

Guzman is charged with animal cruelty, attempted animal cruelty and engaging in or trying to commit a sexual act involving an animal. He is also charged with burglary, criminal trespass and criminal mischief.

Guzman is accused of assaulting the horse in August at a home near Dover. On Oct. 2, he was shot by the 73-year-old property owner after an alarm indicated that there was an intruder in the same barn.
