WAGONER COUNTY, Okla. (KFOR) -- Three people were arrested after a 4-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted and found living in deplorable conditions in an Oklahoma home.
Officials say an investigation started on February 24 when Wagoner County deputies were called to a home in Broken Arrow in reference to a welfare check of a 4-year-old girl.
According to a complaint forwarded from the Creek Nation to Wagoner County dispatchers, the girl was reportedly sexually assaulted by a man in the home and was possibly being introduced to sexually explicit media.
When deputies and Wagoner County DHS arrived they found “deplorable living conditions” in the home.
The Wagoner County Sheriff's Office says deputies and investigators continued to check the home over the next several weeks and still found the living conditions to be terrible.
Arrest warrants were sought and granted for two men, Derrick Scott and Daniel Chissoe.
Officials say evidence was found that the girl was sleeping in the same bedroom as Daniel Chissoe.
DHS took custody of the 4-year-old and removed her from the home.
On June 15, Daniel Chissoe was arrested for felony lewd acts to a minor under 16.
Jane Chissoe was arrested at the home on June 19 for felony child neglect and charged with harboring a fugitive and obstructing a peace officer. Officials say Derrick Scott tried to flee the scene, but was caught running out the back door by an investigator. He was arrested for felony lewd acts to a minor under 16.
