Jayson Newlun, 26, from Missouri, had been babysitting the girl on the night of June 29th and thought he was alone when the child’s parents left to get some food.
But after the girl’s mother forgot something at home, they returned home where they noticed Newlun was not on the couch anymore and their daughter’s bedroom door was open.
The mother walked in and allegedly saw Newlun taking inappropriate photos of her child before touching her genitals while inappropriately touching himself.
According to court documents, Newlun screamed before he was reportedly punched several times by the girl’s father and hit with a dresser drawer.
A neighbour had to step in to stop the father continuing the attack on Newlun.
Case documents reportedly show that 26-year-old was a family friend of the child’s parents.
Family members told police they had only been gone for five or ten minutes.
When the girl’s mother asked him why he would do something like that, he said he didn’t know.
She then reportedly told him: ‘I hope you go down for this’, to which he replied: ‘I do, too.’
Newlun was charged with statutory sodomy and was detained and taken to the Clay County Detention Center.
