The Kansas man is being held in lieu of $1 million bail.

He had been sentenced to 68 months behind bars for choking and raping a 22-year-old woman in Wichita. He was paroled in April.

He is now accused of entering a condo where the young girl was sleeping, choking her into unconsciousness, and raping her, prosecutors said.

Breitenbach took the child, who he did not know, from a bedroom and assaulted her on a balcony, authorities said.
