Sheriff: Homeless man propositioned teen girl

Posted

YORK (AP) - A South Carolina man who was given shelter from the rain is accused of propositioning the homeowner's 13-year-old daughter.

Citing a York County Sheriff's Office incident report, the Herald of Rock Hill reported the homeowner told authorities she let Leonard Dale Dover stay at her home because he was homeless and it was raining. The report says that while she was at the store, Dover offered her daughter money for several sexual acts as he performed sex acts on himself.

The girl used her cellphone to record some of Dover's actions. Sheriff's officer spokesman Trent Faris says Dover was arrested Friday on a charge of attempting to commit a lewd act with a minor.

It's unclear whether he has a lawyer.
