FedEx deliveryman accused of raping teens inside company truck in New York

WASHINGTON, New York (WABC) -- A FedEx deliveryman is accused of raping at least two teenagers inside his company truck.

Police say 30-year-old Poughkeepsie resident Joshua Ginyard befriended a group of friends under the age of 17 while on his route in Dutchess County.

Police say over the course of a few weeks, Ginyard sexually abused the teens.

He was initially arrested on August 17 for allegedly sending two minors sexually explicit text messages.
