Sex offender arrested for kidnapping charged with more crimes

NEW CASTLE, KY (WAVE) - A man accused of kidnapping three young girls and sexually abusing one of them is now facing even more charges.

Roderick Dale Whitney, 51, is a convicted sex offender. He was arrested last week on charges stemming from an incident in July.

Detectives said on July 25, 2018, Whitney was at an Eminence apartment building talking to the 10-year-old and her two friends, ages 8 and 7.

Police said he forced the girls into his truck, took them to his house and made them clean.

When he told one of the girls to scrub a carpet with a toothbrush, police said he got behind her and allegedly committed a sexual act.
