TULSA, Oklahoma -

Tulsa Police Department's Child Crisis Unit has confirmed an arrest has been made in connection with an reported child sexual assault.

Detectives told News On 6 that a citizen saw the news and notified authorities about a possible suspect after a woman said she awoke to find a strange man in her home assaulting her 5-year-old daughter.

The tip led police to question Kyle Hancock, 29, of Sapulpa, who is registered sex offender. Hancock was placed into custody Saturday night.

Officers now are in the process of obtaining a search warrant for Hancock's home and they plan to do a DNA sample, they said.

News On 6 filmed as Hancock was led into the jail in a white jumpsuit, which is used to preserve evidence.

The girl's mother said she awoke early Saturday morning to find a man sexually assaulting her 5-year-old daughter. It took place at about 4:30 a.m. in the 2700 block of South 112th East Avenue.

Police said the mother was asleep and woke to hear her daughter crying. She went into the room and saw Hancock with the child, authorities say.

She pulled him off her daughter, and he escaped the house through the kitchen window into the back yard, according to police.

TPD Sgt. Chris Moudy said they believe Hancock used the kitchen window to enter the home.

The woman called 911, and police started searching the neighborhood, using a K-9 officer.

At the time, Moudy said Hancock may have had a car waiting or the K-9 might not have been able to pick up his scent.

Police said Hancock was described as wearing a blue striped shirt and green boxer shorts at the time of the alleged attack.

Detectives said they don't believe there was any prior relationship between Hancock and the family, and they are treating it as stranger rape.

The child was taken to the hospital for treatment.

Neighbors said the family is nice and is often seen taking neighborhood walks.

"I don't understand the minds of people that do things like [sexual assault on a child]," neighbor Jerry Ishmael said. "They're either taking something that makes them a little bit off balance or something."

Hancock previously was convicted of lewd proposals/acts to a child under 16. In 2012, he was sentenced to three years suspended, fines and ordered to register as a lifetime sex offender.

Court records show Hancock was having trouble sticking to his payment plan and a probation violation report was filed in November 2013. The state made a motion to revoke his suspended sentence on Dec. 26, 2013 and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
