Recently, a disturbing case was brought to us by an anonymous contact. Because of the nature of the accusation, we have decided to push this article forward. 23-year-old, Nathain Ryan Hisey, of Berwick PA, is accused of sexually assaulting a 6-year-old child. According to the child, whose name has been withheld due to her age, the incident occurred at Hisey’s home. So, what exactly happened on that day? That’s exactly what we’re about to dive into.
On December 7,2021 the child had gone over to Hisey’s home for a play date. According to the child, she had gone into the restroom to wash her hands when Hisey, a father of two, soon to be three, followed her and asked if she needed help. It was, at this point, the predator made his move. According to the victim, she was instructed to close her eyes and open her mouth. Upon doing so, she states that he placed something into it.
On the drive home, Hisey made yet another attempt to assault the young child. Unlike the first time, the girl refused to comply. She was then instructed to tell nobody about the assault. Upon arriving home, the mother noted that the girl was in a clear state of distraught, reportedly crying. The girl proceeded to inform the mother of what had happened while at the Hisey residence. The girl explained that she could hear him unzip his pants. The “object” he inserted was described as “soft and round, like a hotdog. She further elaborated by describing the object as “hairy but not cold.”
We asked an individual, who was before the accusation, friends with Hisey, if he was at all surprised by the accusation. In his response, he stated, “I am, but only to an extent. Nate is a well-known dishonest person – it’s practically in his DNA. He’s done a lot of dishonest things that put the average person to task. On the other hand, I wouldn’t have thought he’d touch a child.”
We then proceeded to ask the individual about how his other friends have taken the accusation, presuming he knew. He replied saying, “Well, so far I think it’s a mix. They’re looking at it with an “innocent until proven guilty” perspective, which I understand. Meanwhile, there’s one other aside from me who believe he’s guilty.”
Finally, we asked if the fact that the accusation is coming from the child have any effect on his perception of this situation. To that question, he stated, “Well, from what I’ve seen, the victim’s story hasn’t changed an inch. The story we were given by the perpetrator was somewhat altered – which makes me look at both him and his spouse in a bad light. So, it’s worse in my eyes than others. I also come from a biased source, being an abuse survivor myself. I try not to let that factor into things, but there’s too many holes in the story I was given before I saw the article.”
Currently, Hisey is facing two charges: rape of a child and Invol. Deviate Sexual Intercourse W/Child. Both of these are Class 1 (or class A for some other states,) felonies. If convicted, he could face the potential of being imprisoned for approximately sixty years. This is, of course, presuming that no other additional charges are added onto the current ones.
Hisey denies that the event occurred. In his account, he admits to instructing the victim to close her eyes and open her mouth. However, he states that what he gave her was nothing more than a “Nutrigrain bar. Currently, Hisey is not incarcerated, being permitted to walk the streets. Though his current location is unknown, we can’t rule out the possibility that he has returned to his home, which have children present. Below is the current docket.MdjDocketSheet
