northern New York man who's listed on the state's sex-offender registry faces new allegations of sexual abuse involving an underage girl.

Fifty-eight-year-old Raleigh Eldred of Plattsburgh has been charged with sexually assaulting an eleven-year-old girl. He pleaded innocent yesterday and is being held in Clinton County Jail.

Plattsburgh police say Eldred followed the girl between two buildings Tuesday afternoon, pushed her to the ground and began to molest her. The girl managed to break free and run away.

Eldred is listed as a Level Three sex offender on the state's sexual-offender registry, meaning he's believed to be at a high risk for repeat behavior.
