CARLISLE, Pa. (AP) — A Pennsylvania man has admitted he sexually assaulted a 6-year-old boy after authorities say they intercepted an internet broadcast of him raping the child and later discovered 10 other recorded assaults of the boy.

PennLive.com reports (http://bit.ly/2dm83GQ ) 20-year-old William Byers Augusta pleaded guilty in Carlisle on Tuesday to charges including rape of a child.

Prosecutors say Canadian authorities intercepted a broadcast of Byers Augusta sexually assaulting the boy in July 2015.

Investigators found videos showing Byers Augusta assaulting the child, including one of him and 62-year-old Ira Task simultaneously sexually assaulting the child.
