SEBRING, Ohio (WYTV) – A Sebring man has been jailed on gross sexual imposition charges, accused of inappropriately touching a 12-year-old female relative.
Sean Mills, 26, was arrested following an investigation.
The alleged victim’s mother called police around 3 a.m. Sunday after she awoke to her daughter crying. The girl said she woke up to a hand pulling away from her and her underwear on the floor across from where she was sleeping.
Mills, who was in the home at the time, told police he saw someone running out the back door after the reported incident. Police found no signs of forced entry nor any footsteps around the home.
The girl later came back to the police station with her mother and told investigators that Mills had touched her but said she was afraid of him.
Police said during an interview with Mills, he changed his story on the reported intruder multiple times.
Mills was taken to Mahoning County Jail, where he remained Monday, on a $8,000 bond. His next court date was set for 11 a.m. Thursday.
