MASSENA, N.Y. (WWNY) - A Massena man is accused of rape and incest.

Massena police released little information but said 35-year-old Paul Mathous of 5 Randal Court was charged Wednesday with third-degree rape and third-degree incest, both felonies.

He was also charged with endangering the welfare of a child, a misdemeanor.

Police say Mathous is a convicted level 2 sex offender. State records show he was convicted of third-degree rape in 2010 for having sex with a 16-year-old girl.

Level 2 sex offenders are considered at moderate risk of reoffending.

Mathous was arraigned on the recent charges in Massena court and sent to St. Lawrence County jail pending further action.
