An Elyria monster is in custody after admitting to sexually assaulting a 5-year-old Elyria girl, police say.
Timothy Minnich, 20, was charged with rape, a first-degree felony.
Elyria police Capt. Chris Costantino said the diabolical pedophile was charged and taken into custody after admitting to raping the girl when he went to the police station at 8 a.m., March 14.
“We interviewed Minnich today, and he admitted to doing these things to the victim while he was babysitting her,” Costantino said.
The investigation began March 10 when the victim's mother came to the station after the 5-year-old said some things that concerned her, he said.
The sex terrorist was taken to Lorain County Jail and will be held there, without bond, pending an appearance in Elyria Municipal Court.
“We encourage anyone who has been around Minnich to come forward if they are also a victim, or know of someone who is a victim,” Costantino said.
Anyone with information can call the Elyria Police Department at 440-323-3302.
