Cape Cod police arrest man for attempted child sex assault – NBC Boston

Cape Cod police say a man was arrested after he allegedly tried to sexually assault a child during a soccer game Tuesday.

Officers responded to Peter Homer Memorial Park in Yarmouth, Massachusetts, shortly before 8 p.m. Callers reported a man pulling a 5-year-old child behind the park’s restrooms.

Police said the child screamed and scared off the alleged attacker. He was seen leaving on an electric bike.

Police arrested Ryan Evans, 27, of Dennis, Wednesday afternoon after serving a search warrant.

The Yarmouth Police Department said Evans was previously charged in 2021 with assault with intent to rape a child, unarmed burglary and assault, assault and battery, criminal damage to property and theft.

It is not yet clear whether Evans has an attorney who could respond to the charges against him.
