Four northern Wood County men were indicted for rape and other charges by a Wood County grand jury this week.
Michael C. Horn, 41, Rossford, was indicted on six counts of rape, a first-degree felony.
According to the indictment, the charges relate to incidents allegedly occurring between Aug. 1 and December 24, 2013, involving two separate juvenile females, listed as being 14 and 15 years of age at the time of the most recent incidents. The indictment indicates that both of the alleged victims were "compelled ... to submit by force of threat of force" and their ability to consent or resist "was substantially impaired."
Each of the charges carries with it a sexually violent predator specification.
Kevin R. Scott, 52, Perrysburg, was indicted on five counts of rape.
According to the indictment, all of the incidents occurred between October 2005, and July 2007, and involved a juvenile female who was between the ages of 8 and 10.
Scott R. Barker, 55, Perrysburg, was indicted on one count of rape, and two counts of sexual battery, a second-degree felony.
The charges stem from a reported Jan. 18, 2014, incident allegedly involving a juvenile female who was 10 years of age at the time.
Concerning the sexual battery charges, the indictment alleges that the girl "was unaware that the act was being committed" and Barker "knew that the victim's ability to appraise the nature of or control of her conduct was substantially impaired."

A Findlay man has been charged with first-degree aggravated arson after he allegedly threw a "Drano bomb" that exploded near a group of people Thursday.
No injuries were reported.
Taylor Dible, 20, was arrested after the incident, which occurred at 8:15 p.m. at the Copper Beech apartments, 2057 Napoleon Road.
Maj. Tony Hetrick of the Bowling Green Police Division said this morning a group of other people were standing near one of the apartment buildings when the bomb - consisting of a soft drink bottle and other components - was thrown.
"He (Dible) did yell to them to move and they did confirm that did happen," said Hetrick.
After the bomb was thrown and landed, it exploded.
Dible was later found inside one of the apartments and taken into custody after he reportedly admitted to the incident.
"He said he made it to throw into the field, but threw it in the other direction and landed by those people," said Hetrick, saying Dible indicated "he didn't want to hurt anybody."

FREMONT - The famous White House Easter egg roll traces its roots to Fremont. It was 19th U.S. President Rutherford B. Hayes of Fremont who started the egg roll in 1878.
President Hayes let it be known that children living in nearby neighborhoods could gather on the White House lawn at Easter to play traditional holiday games.
The Capitol’s lawn was the gathering spot until Congress banned the youngsters because of damage done to the lawns.
The Hayes Presidential Center celebrates Hayes’ role in creation of what became a White House tradition with its Hayes Easter Egg Roll. This holiday event, sponsored by Roots Poultry and Welly’s Horseradish, takes place from 2 to 3:30 p.m. Saturday on lawn in front of the President’s home.
Children ages 3-10 can compete in a variety of egg-rolling contests.

OAK HARBOR — After discovering the bodies of a missing Perrysburg Township woman and teenage South Carolina girl in western Lake Erie Thursday, authorities were poised to continue their search for two men who accompanied them on a mid-week fishing trip.
However, the Coast Guard said this morning they have called off their portion of the search, indicating there was little hope of finding the men alive.
The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office identified Amy Santus, 33, Perrysburg Township, and Paige Widmer, 16, Leesville, S.C., as the two who were found, according to the Associated Press.
Neither the Ottawa County Sheriff’s Office nor the Coast Guard said that the names of the two missing men with Santus and Widmer had been released. Petty Officer Lauren Laughlin, a media representative with the Coast Guard, said the names had not been released at the request of the respective families.
