Man charged with rape and abuse of children


A 37-year-old Wichita man was charged in Sedgwick County Court with rape and child abuse. 

Eric E. McFadden was charged with aggravated criminal sodomy, two counts of rape, three counts of aggravated indecent liberties with a child, and five counts of abuse of a child.

Last week, Wichita police said the the oldest of nine children went to a police station to report the alleged abuse. McFadden was arrested Friday afternoon, about an hour after the 13-year-old boy reported he and two other children had been sexually assaulted. 

The nine children have been placed in police protective custody. They range in age from an infant to the 13-year-old boy.

McFadden’s next court appearance is set for May 1. He is being held on a $250,000 bond.
