Police in Indiana are asking for the public’s assistance in tracking down a man suspected of impregnating a 10-year-old girl.
The Marion Police Department posted a plea on its Facebook page Wednesday, identifying the wanted suspect as 34-year-old Nicholas Deon Thrash.
According to the police, Thrash is facing 10 counts of child molesting, which involves allegedly getting his girlfriend’s 10-year-old daughter pregnant.
The victim’s 32-year-old mother was arrested on May 16 on two counts of felony neglect of a dependent.
She is being held at Grant County Jail on $100,005 cash bond, reported the station WANE.
The Daily Mail is not naming the jailed mother to protect the privacy of the victim due to her age and the sexual nature of the crime.
According to the woman’s social media postings, the couple have been dating for at least two years and the woman also has a son.
Thrash’s Facebook account indicates that he is originally from New York. He is described as 6 foot 1, weighing 160lbs.
It is believed that Thrash has fled Marion and is on the run at this time.
Anyone with any information on the suspect’s whereabouts is being asked to contact the Marion Police Department at (765) 662-9981 or Crime Stoppers at (765) 662-8477.
