A 53-year-old man in custody for allegedly drugging and raping a 22-year-old babysitter in nearby Norwalk may have additional alleged victims.
Kevin Cady is accused of hiring the woman on Jan. 11 through an online babysitting service to watch his children at his home in the 14100 block of Bayside Drive in Norwalk while he was at work, according to Sgt. Gary Harman of the Norwalk Sheriff's Station.
Cady returned home early and offered the woman a drink, which she consumed and immediately began to feel sleepy, he said. When she woke up sometime later, Cady was sexually assaulting her, the detective alleged.
The woman fled and called the sheriff's department. Cady was detained, but was released pending further investigation and results of a toxicology report that came back on Feb. 15 showing the presence of a drug normally used in hospitals before surgical procedures, which causes drowsiness and memory loss, Harman said.
"His M.O. was to find a babysitter over the Internet,'' the detective said. "Obviously we don't know if there are additional victims, but if someone babysat for him and had a suspicious incident where they weren't really sure what happened, we want them to contact us.''
An arrest warrant was served on Feb. 29, and Cady was booked at the Norwalk Sheriff's Station. He remains in custody awaiting a preliminary hearing to determine if there is enough evidence to order him to stand trial.
Anyone who may have had a similar experience involving the suspect was asked to call detectives at (562) 863-8711 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
