Man Accused of Drugging and Raping His Kids' Babysitter
A woman hired as a babysitter in Norwalk allegedly woke up to find her employer sexually assaulting her in his home after giving her a drink containing a sedative, reports ABC News. Kevin Cady, 53, allegedly found the 22-year-old sitter on a website, sittercity.com. He hired her to come to his house and watch his two kids on January 11 while he was out of the house. When he got home, officials say that he gave the woman a drink, and after consuming it, she lost consciousness.
When she awoke, Cady was sexually assaulting her. KTLA reports that a toxicology report showed that she had Midazolam in her system -- a drug used before surgery in hospitals that causes drowsiness and memory loss.
The woman fled the scene and called the sheriff's department.
Cady was served with an arrest warrant on February 29. KTLA reports that he posted bail yesterday and was released, and is scheduled to be arraigned in a Bellflower court on April 30.
According to City News Service, police suspect that Cady might have other victims, and anyone with information is being asked to call detectives at (562) 863-8711 or email email@example.com.
