Collinsville man charged with solicitation of a child now in custody
By KMOV Web Producer
(KMOV)-- The Collinsville police have found and arrested a man charged with Indecent Solicitation of a Child.
Officials say Evan Kyle, 27, of the 900 block of St. Clair Avenue in Collinsville, made several lewd, descriptive, and explicit comments while following a 16-year-old girl and her 8-year-old sister in September.
Sergeant Eric Zaber of the Collinsville Police Department says the words Kyle said to the girls on their way home from school are too vulgar to even repeat.
Police found Kyle Tuesday evening, and they now want to know if the two girls were his only victims.
Authorities describe him as violent and unpredictable.
Kyle has been arrested dozens of times before, usually for drunk and disorderly conduct.
Police named Kyle as the suspect in October, and he was formally charged on Monday.
He is now in Madison County Jail on an $85,000 bond.
