Police say a man is in custody after he allegedly broke into a home and groped a 10-year-old girl and two 9-year-olds.
Hutchinson Police Lt. John Moore says the girls’ father chased 21-year-old Tyler Lee Ford from the home and police later found him walking in the area.
Officers responding to the call in Hutchinson found the suspect’s cell phone in the girls’ bedroom. Police say the girls don’t know Ford, who lives within a block of their home.
Kansas Department of Corrections records show the suspect was convicted of theft in November of 2012 and burglary and theft in June. He is currently on intensive supervised probation.
