WAUKESHA- A Waukesha man is charged with sexually assaulting young girls.
The latest incident happened during a sleepover at his house.
Dale Voss is in the Waukesha County jail, facing multiple counts of sexually assaulting girls he knew.
Some girls as young as 9.
And it's not the first time.
It's a parent's nightmare, but one police say you can help prevent.
Lenny Ihm and his two little girls live in Dale Voss' neighborhood. He's shocked at what Voss' accusers say he did.
Several young girls over several years claim Voss touched them inappropriately. One girl told police at a sleepover just this month, "she was awakened by her shirt being pulled down...exposing her breasts."
That sparked an investigation into his past behavior and more victims came forward. One saying she was with him in a vacant building several years ago when "the defendant then grabbed her hand and put her hand around his penis."
"I never think about it being that close to home. It's kind of a wakeup call," said Ihm.
And one police say parents can do something about with this website.
According to Waukesha Police Sgt. Jerry Habanek, "It shows a picture of the person, the offender. There's also a button you can click that shows what they were convicted of."
TODAY'S TMJ4 plugged in Voss' name and there it is: a conviction for sexually assaulting a child in 1991.
A disturbing past that police say didn't have to repeat itself.
"It's the type of abuse that has a pattern and has deep seeds in the community," said Habanek.
Voss told police the girls are lying about what happened.
If he's convicted, he'll spend the rest of his life in prison.
