Kansas man accused of raping stepdaughter, 12

WICHITA – A 29-year-old man has been arrested on suspicion of sexually assaulting his 12-year-old stepdaughter in Wichita.

The Wichita Eagle reports the man faces charges of rape of a child 13 and under, aggravated indecent liberties with a child and sexual assault of a child.

Wichita police Lt. James Espinoza said a 30-year-old woman returned home Saturday evening from running errands and found that the house was locked. After repeatedly ringing the doorbell, her husband answered the door and the woman said she learned he had sexually assaulted the girl.

Espinoza said authorities do not believe this is the only time the girl has been assaulted.
