Police: Ohio man walked into school, groped girl

AKRON, Ohio (AP) — Police in Akron say a man walked into a middle school and lured a 12-year-old girl into an empty office where he fondled her.

School officials say the man got in the school Wednesday by walking through the front door as a vendor left the building.

Police say the man took two laptop computers and two cameras before fondling the girl.

A school official tells the Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/1hRHbrS ) that the front door can only be opened by a buzzer or from within.

He says staff members and students know not to let anyone inside and that school officials will make sure that all visitors will be told that too.

Police say the 21-year-old Barberton man was charged with breaking and entering, criminal trespassing and gross sexual imposition.
