LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Kentucky State Police say a man accused of sexually molesting a young boy jumped out a window in an effort to avoid capture.
According to an arrest report, it happened just after 11 p.m. on Wednesday, June 29, on 119 Hwy. 467, near Main Street, in Sparta.
Police showed up at the home of 44-year-old David R. Jiles to arrest him on a warrant for first degree sexual abuse and first degree sodomy. According to the arrest report, one trooper knocked on the front door while the other stood at the back of the home. Police say Jiles did not come to the door. Instead, police say a back window opened and Jiles jumped out and began running.
Police say a trooper yelled for Jiles to stop, but he didn't, so officers had to apprehend him after a brief foot chase.
According to an arrest warrant, the sexual abuse and sodomy charges stem from two incidents that allegedly occurred in Gallatin County, Kentucky, between Jan 1, 2010 and Dec. 31, 2011, when the victim was between the ages of nine and 11. Police say Jiles sexually molested the boy on two occasions.
Jiles is currently being held in the Carroll County Detention Center.
