Arrest made in Belton after attempted attack on a child

On 7-5-2021 at around 6 AM, Belton officers were dispatched to a residence in Crown Trailer Park on a report of a burglary. Upon arrival, officers determined that a male party had broken into an occupied residence and attempted to attack a child.

The child fought back and began to scream at which time the male party fled the residence. The male party was identified immediately as he was known to the child and other family members.

Belton officers along with Cass County deputies set up a perimeter in the area to capture the suspect. Shortly before 10 AM, Larry D. Register Jr. of Belton was taken into custody by a Cass County Sheriff’s deputy and turned over to our department.

This morning, the Cass County Prosecutor’s Office filed charges of First Degree Burglary and Second Degree Attempted Child Molestation against Larry D. Register Jr. with no bond.
