Man admits abducting 6-year-old from bed, raping her in yard

Court-Gavel

ASHLAND, Ohio (AP) — A man who broke into a 6-year-old girl’s Ohio home, grabbed her from her bed and raped her in the backyard has pleaded guilty.

26-year-old Brock Martin pleaded guilty Monday to rape, kidnapping and other charges in a plea deal with Ashland County prosecutors.

Authorities say someone in the house saw Martin assaulting the girl in August 2015 and chased him a short distance before asking a neighbor to call 911. Officers used a police dog to find Martin and arrest him.

Martin told authorities he also broke into a home in 2013 and assaulted two 13-year-old girls during a sleepover. Prosecutors say he didn’t know any of the victims and chose them at random.

Martin’s attorney didn’t return a call seeking comment.
