UPDATE 10:10 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 17, 2019 - Those living on Magnolia Avenue are in shock after they learned of the arrest of York.

Action News Now spoke with neighbors about the suspected crime.

"I'm a survivor of sex abuse as a child and I'm 43 and still dealing with it today," said Kathleen Erickson. "You never know, honestly, you never know what somebody is doing behind closed doors and obviously, it's very close to home."

Tami Jackson said she is concerned for kids in the area, like her own grandson.

"It makes me sad for what our society has come to, and people think that's just okay. That's heartbreaking," said Jackson.

Windy with high fire danger today. Winds calm down tomorrow with mild temperatures and sunny skies all week. By next we cool down and even have the chance for rain.
