A father was horrified to find a pervert hiding in his closet after coming over to the house to have sex with his 12-year-old daughter.
The unidentified dad said he found 42-year-old Christopher Todd Leonard (pictured above) shirtless in the closet of his Texas home on November 2, 2018, while getting ready for work around 5.30am.
Leonard, who was not aggressive, told the father that the girl invited him over to their home. He claimed he thought the girl was 21. But the girl said the man was aware of her real age.
According to KPRC, Leonard said he had been talking to the girl through Facebook and Instagram.
The 12-year-old told authorities that she had met Leonard while using public transportation a few weeks prior to the incident. She said he gave her his phone number and they contacted each other through texts and phone calls.
When authorities looked through Leonard’s phone, they also found sexually explicit messages that he had sent to the girl.
The girl’s father told KPRC: “The man literally brainwashed her.
“Knowing this guy could have done something to my daughter and then knowing that I had another daughter that he could have done something to, it really affected me, and my family as well.”
Police has issued a warrant for Leonard’s arrest. He has been charged with online solicitation of a minor.
