LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — An Elizabethtown, Kentucky, man has been arrested after police say he engaged in sexual relations with an 8-year-old victim over a period of several months.
According to an arrest warrant, it happened from May 31, 2016, to Feb. 28, 2017, in Hardin County.
Police say 35-year-old Christopher Carson engaged in “deviate sexual intercourse” with the 8-year-old.
Eventually, the juvenile told someone what was happening, according to the arrest warrant. Police say they executed a search warrant and seized Carson’s computer, eventually finding evidence on the computer that corroborated the child’s claims.
A warrant was issued for Carson’s arrest on Saturday, and he was taken into custody later that same day.
Police say that when Kentucky State Police troopers arrived at Carson’s Elizabethtown home to serve the warrant on Saturday night, they found him hiding under a table in the basement. The troopers loudly ordered him to come out from under the table, or he would be tazed.
According to an arrest report, Carson refused, and had to be dragged out from under the table before he was finally taken into custody.
He’s charged with one count of first-degree sodomy and one count of resisting arrest.
Carson is currently being held in the Hardin County Detention Center.
