Thanks to a loyal family dog, a 55-year-old sexual predator is behind bars.
Richie Dock of Oran, Missouri, allegedly exposed himself to and inappropriately touched a young girl, who then called her dog over, according to the Southeast Missourian. The dog then reportedly bit the suspect until Dock let her go. The local paper also reported that the suspect, a registered sex offender, had threatened the girl previously.
He has been charged with felony sexual abuse, sodomy, and felonious restraint.
