(KMOV)-- An Alton, IL man is charged with sexually assaulting a child.

Michele Clark, 36, was charged with four felony counts of aggravated criminal sexual abuse and one count of residential burglary.

Authorities said a female relative of Clark said she was away from her home in the 3900 block of Torch Club Road for the evening. Her child, who is under the age of 13, was inside the home with her father. When the woman returned home around 2 a.m. she saw Clark exiting her home. Clark used to live at the home but had not lived there since July 2009. The woman told police Clark had no reason to be at the residence.

When she walked inside the home she found evidence that Clark climbed through a window to get inside the home. She also found evidence to suspect that Clark had sexually abused her child. The father of the child was sleeping.

Clark had already left the home when police were contacted.

Clark was taken into custody Monday. Bond was set at $200,000.
