HUTCHINSON, Kan. (AP) — A 21-year-old Hutchinson man is being held on $85,000 bond after authorities alleged that he broke into a home and groped three young girls.

Tyler Lee Ford was charged Monday with aggravated burglary and three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child.

Authorities allege he broke into the home Sunday and groped a 10-year-old girl and two 9-year-old girls who were in bed.

The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/188HdoI ) police said Ford did not know the girls. Police say they found Ford’s cellphone in the girls’ room.

An indecent liberties with a child conviction carries a life sentence without the possibility of parole for 25 years.
