A man in Missouri has been charged with statutory sodomy of a 1-year-old girl he was babysitting after the child’s parents allegedly caught him in the act.

The girl’s father went into a fit of rage and hit him repeatedly with a dresser drawer.

Jayson Newlun, 26, was babysitting the toddler while her parents took a trip to the store but when the girl’s mother forgot her WIC food assistance folder at home, they returned to retrieve it.

Went they got home, the mother noticed Newlun was not on the couch anymore – and that her daughter’s bedroom door was open.

The mother walked in and reportedly saw Newlun take an inappropriate photo of her child before touching the little girl’s genitals while inappropriately touching himself.

Court documents say that Newlun screamed before he was tackled by the girl’s father who reportedly hit Newlun with a dresser drawer and punched him several times.

Family members told police they had been gone for only five or ten minutes.  Probable cause documents, in this case, show that Newlun was a family friend of the child’s parents and stayed at the family’s home the night of June 29th.

The mother reportedly saw what was happening, and ran to get her husband. That’s when Newlun got beat-up by the girl’s father. His injuries are clear in his Clay County Jail mugshot. A neighbor had to step in to stop the man from continuing to attack Newlun.

The mother said that while she was waiting for officers to arrive, she asked him why he would do something like this.

He told her he didn’t know.

She apparently told him ‘I hope you go down for this.’ He replied ‘I do, too.’

Newlun was detained and taken to the Clay County Detention Center where a $250,000 bond has been requested.
