A convicted sex offender is in custody after reports Friday evening that he had been sexually abusing his girlfriend's 10-year-old daughter, Wichita police said Saturday.
Police Sgt. Bruce Watts said the child's grandmother took the girl to a police substation at around 7 p.m. to report the abuse. She told police the mother's live-in boyfriend had been abusing the girl for seven to eight months.
Officers went to the mother's residence in the 1700 block of West 34th Street South and arrested the 30-year-old man for indecent liberties with a child.
Police noted that the man was on parole for a 2003 conviction of rape of a child under the age of 14. The man's name has not been released pending formal charges.
No other information has been released.
