A Burtonsville, Maryland, man is accused of routinely befriending women so he could rape their young children.
During one video, Kyle S. Thompson, 31, reportedly responded “Your mommy can’t save you,” as the toddler screamed “I want my mommy.” Police, who recovered 15 registered weapons from Thompson’s apartment, believed he bound and held his victims at gunpoint, according to WTOP.
The New York Daily News reported that another recording supposedly showed a girl crying and her arms tied with a belt while Thompson committed a sex act. He allegedly abused the young girl for six months, taking place in the Burtonsville residence and in nearby woods.
He is also accused of trying to molest a victim’s older sister in the woods in 2013. In that instance, the girl told police that Thompson tried to sexually abuse her after asking for a hug, but she was able to flee.
On Thursday, a federal grand jury indicted Thompson on 18 counts of recording himself having sex with three different children—all under the age of five. WUSA reported the 31-year-old was already charged with two counts of sex abuse of a minor, two counts of a first-degree sex offense, and one count of a third-degree sex offense.
Charging documents obtained by WUSA describes the 31-year-old as an “extremely violent man.” Authorities also accused Thompson of battering and raping one victim’s mother—and putting a handgun up to her mouth to terrify her.
Authorities conducted the bust a day after they received an anonymous tip about the unsettling occurrences. In addition to the weapons, a sweep produced child porn on several computers. WGHP reported that investigators unearthed a video of him assaulting a 3-year-old girl while a relative left to buy food.
“It does stand out as gruesome in nature. The activity that is alleged to have occurred is very disturbing, to say the least,” Scott Hinckley, assistant special agent in charge of the FBI Baltimore Field Office, told WTOP.
Montgomery Assistant State’s Attorney Danielle Sartwell called the case “horrific.” Documents obtained by the Daily News stated that Thompson denied the allegations and said he didn’t know any of the girls.
Thompson, who has no prior criminal record, is held without bond.
