Jackson County prosecutors on Friday accused Alfonzo M. Morrison, 28, of Kansas City, of raping a 4-year-old girl at her baby sitter’s house.

The baby sitter and another woman interrupted the attack after hearing the girl scream inside the home in the 7400 block of Tracy Avenue about 2 a.m. Thursday.

Morrison has relatives who live at the home. The witnesses told police they found Morrison, wearing no shirt and with his pants down, holding the girl in a room, according to court records. They yelled at him and asked what he was doing. The girl then ran from Morrison to the baby sitter.

The girl told specially trained child welfare workers that Morrison sodomized and raped her.

Prosecutors charged Morrison with statutory rape, statutory sodomy and child enticement.

He was being held on a $500,000 bond.
