LOUISVILLE, Ky. — A Kentucky man was arrested Saturday after allegedly using a shovel to attack an 8-year-old girl, who police say he raped and robbed Friday.

Cane L. Madden, 29, was previously ruled mentally incompetent by a judge in February who dismissed charges that he bit off part of a woman’s face and sexually assaulted her in 2017, the Associated Press reports.

He was reportedly arrested on charges of first-degree rape, assault and robbery.

Officers responded Friday to a report saying a girl was beaten and had her iPad stolen. She was found with injuries indicating sexual assault and a fractured skull, a Louisville police arrest citation says.

Madden was questioned nearby and told detectives details about the assault that were deemed “intimate,” the citation says.
