COLUMBUS, Ohio (WSYX/WTTE) - A man is in jail after a woman allegedly saw him sexually assaulting a child in an abandoned garage in west Columbus.

Charles Sadler, 34, is accused of raping a 3-year-old girl he was babysitting on Friday afternoon.

The witness said she saw the suspect with the child in a garage in the 300 block of South Richardson Avenue. She then called 911 and followed him for several blocks until police caught up and arrested him.


Sadler's family, who was also home at the time, noticed he and the child were missing, but thought he was "passed out drunk somewhere."

They added they were grateful the woman caught Sadler in the alleged act and won't help him with legal troubles, even if they could financially.

Sadler is in the Franklin County Jail on a $200,000 bond.
