LEBANON, Pa. (AP) — A 70-year-old central Pennsylvania man charged with kidnapping a 9-year-old girl from her home last year has been arrested again for stalking the child.
Lebanon police said Willis Christ was standing on the front porch of the girl’s home Monday afternoon before her mother told him to leave and called police.
Police said Friday that Christ was out on bail from the original incident. His bail was revoked after the stalking charge.
Christ was accused of entering the girl’s home through an unlocked door on Sept. 30, grabbing her from behind, covering her mouth and dragging her from the house into an alley.
The girl, who is now 10, managed to escape and was not hurt. Police said the victim and her family don’t know the suspect.
