HUTCHINSON– A Hutchinson man was arrested early Sunday morning after he allegedly broke into a home and groped three children.

Hutchinson police say 21-year-old Tyler Lee Ford broke into a home on the 200 block of South Monroe around 2 a.m. and groped three girls sleeping in a bedroom in the home: two 9-year-olds and a 10-year-old.

According to police the children’s father woke up and chased Ford from the home. Ford is said to have left his cell phone in the home.

Ford is currently being held on $85,000 bond for one count of aggravated burglary and three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

The Kansas Department of Corrections records show Ford has been convicted before on charges of theft in November 2012 and for burglary and theft in June.
