COLUMBUS, Ohio — A man is in jail after a woman allegedly saw him raping a 3-year-old in a garage and intervened to stop him, WSYX reports.
Charles Sadler, 34, was arrested last Friday on multiple sexual assault charges after police say he raped a girl he was babysitting.
According to police, a woman was driving when she saw Sadler allegedly raping the child in an abandoned garage on the west side of Columbus.
The witness called 911 and followed him for several blocks until police were able to catch up and arrest Sadler. Emergency personnel took the child to the hospital.
The suspect’s family, who was also home at the time of the alleged incident, told WSYX they thought Sadler was “passed out drunk somewhere.” They also said they are “grateful” the Good Samaritan called 911.
Sadler is in the Franklin County Jail in lieu of a $200,000 bond.
