Kansas City, Missouri - William Bates, Jr., 24, is in custody after he tried to rape a 2-year-old girl at a playground on Friday.
According to KTLA, the 2-year-old girl was playing on swings at the Kemp Playground when Bates showed up and started "eyeballing" the children.
The mother of the children said that Bates then walked up, snatched up her daughter, grabbed her by the hips, and pulled down her diaper. Bates then lifted his shirt, dropped his pants, and started thrusting at the child.
The mother then went into mama bear mode and charged Bates, knocking him to the ground. While Bates was on the ground, the mother began to pummel him with her fists until Bates was able to escape and run away.
The baby's mother then ran to a nearby homeless shelter and called the police.
The officers responded and located Bates near the playground. Bates was placed under arrest and he was found to be carrying a white vial of fluid with a chemical odor as well as marijuana.
Once at the jail, Bates claims that he just got a cigarette from somebody at the park and doesn't remember anything after that until he was getting arrest by police.
The dirtbag is being charged with first-degree attempted sodomy, and attempted statutory sodomy with a person less than 12 years old. Bail was set at $150,000 cash.
Do you think that we should get the electric chair ready, or do you think there might be something to his cigarette excuse? We'd like to hear what you think. Please let us know in the comments.
