NBC Bay Area: Man Arrested in Sexual Assault of 8-Year-Old in San Jose

A man was arrested last week in the sexual assault of a juvenile girl inside a home, according to the San Jose Police Department.

Dupree Kenneth Hornsby, a 24-year-old man from Stockton, has been charged with entering a home on Damsen Drive in East San Jose and sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl, police said. He had no prior connection to the child and was chased out of the house by a family member.

"You’re at home, place of safety, instead someone takes your child and harms them," said prosecutor Jing-Lan Lee describing the events.

The incident occurred at about 7:35 a.m. Friday, and based on a description of the suspect, officers were able to track down and arrest Hornsby about 90 minutes later as he was walking in the area, police said.
