LAWRENCE, Kan. – A Lawrence man is behind bars, accused of raping two children.

According to booking documents, the 39-year-old man was arrested Saturday at a trailer park along Delaware Street. Because the man is not yet facing charges, FOX 4 is not naming him. A neighbor told FOX 4 she’s seen children visiting the man at his trailer before.

“He had a couple kids visit once in a while, they seemed like nice people,” said Christen Buie. “I’m glad it was caught and it’s being dealt with and it’s not going to be by me like that anymore.”

Police told the Lawrence Journal-World that the alleged crimes were committed against the children, who he knew, for a period of time. The man is being held at The Douglas County Jail.
