A teen runaway was found by police after being sexually assaulted, according to court paperwork. 

Glendale police report that on July 31 their Fugitive Apprehension Unit arrested David Charles Moore, age 56, on multiple counts of sexual conduct with a minor. 

Police searched the area of 59th and Glendale avenues for a runaway girl under 15 years old. Residents reported seeing the girl on the front porch of a neighborhood home. Police searched the house and located the girl in the bathroom. 

The girl reported to police that she was taken to a nearby storage locker, where Moore sexually assaulted her. 

Police reviewed surveillance video at the storage facility and saw a video of the girl and Moore at the facility. 

Upon his arrest, Moore reportedly made statements both admitting and denying the assault.
