Lebanon City Police have now filed stalking charges against a man who allegedly kidnapped a 9-year-old girl from her home back in September.

On Monday, police officers were called to a home in the 800 block of Walnut Street for a trespass complaint. When officers arrived at the scene, the mother the girl, now 10, told police that a man who had been arrested for kidnapping her daughter, had been back on her property.

The woman told police she heard someone outside her home and then saw the suspect standing on the porch. Police say the woman asked the man to leave.

A short distance away, police officers located Willis Christ, 70, who was out on bail for the kidnapping incident, which happened back in September.

A bail revocation hearing was held and Christ’s bail was revoked.  He was taken to Lebanon County Correctional Facility on the original bail of $50,000.

Police say the girl was not home at the time of the incident. Lebanon man charged with kidnapping facing more charges
