Man, 20, charged with kidnapping, assault of St. Louis girl found in vacant house


ST. LOUIS A 20-year-old man was charged Saturday in the kidnapping and assault of the 12-year-old girl found by searchers in a vacant north St. Louis house earlier this month, police said.

Tyrone Butler Jr., of the 2800 block of Abner Place in St. Louis, faces charges of kidnapping, armed criminal action, assault and sodomy. Butler was arrested Friday, authorities said.

Authorities said bail was set at $500,000.

Police were trying to determine whether the suspect knew the victim, sources said. They live in the same area.

The victim, whose identity is now being withheld because she was the victim of sexual assault, had been beaten and had her throat slit, according to court documents.
