A North Carolina man suspected of breaking into a home and kidnapping and molesting a one year old is now in jail.
Halifax County Sheriff Wes Tripp tells local media outlets that deputies responded early Wednesday to a home in North Carolina where a child was reported missing.
Deputies later found the child at the home of 25-year-old registered sex offender Alexander Jamond Ezell.
Tripp says Ezell broke through the front door of a home, took the child and then committed a sex crime against the one year old.
The child was taken to a hospital for treatment.
Deputies searching with a K-9 later found Ezell hiding in the woods behind his home.
Ezell was arrested and faces several charges, including first-degree kidnapping and indecent liberties with a minor.
It's unclear if Ezell has an attorney.
