A 6-year-old girl seeking refuge in a Florida storm shelter from Hurricane Michael's fury was molested by a 60-year-old homeless man, who tried explaining his actions by saying the child told him "touching felt good," police said.
Authorities say a witness described seeing a video of the child being “touched in a lewd manner underneath her clothing” at Davidson Middle School.
Stapleton told investigators he touched the child but argued “it was not in a lewd manner,” police said.
Stapleton also claimed the 6-year-old told him his “touching felt good,” according to court documents viewed by FOX Baltimore.
Hurricane Michael made landfall in the Florida Panhandle on Wednesday as a powerful Category 4 hurricane.
