ASHLAND, Ohio (AP) – An Ashland, Ohio man has been charged with rape and kidnapping after police say he broke into a 6-year-old girl’s bedroom, grabbed her while she slept and sexually assaulted her in the backyard of her family’s home.
An Ashland County judge on Thursday ordered 25-year-old Brock Martin of Ashland held on a $1 million bond. A message seeking comment was left with his attorney Thursday.
Ashland police say Martin broke into the girl’s bedroom around 6:30 a.m. Tuesday. Police say a household member saw Martin assaulting the girl and chased him a short distance before asking a neighbor to call 911.
An Ashland police officer and a sheriff’s deputy found Martin near some woods and used a police dog to apprehend him.
