A Larwill man is in police custody for alleged sexual misconduct with a minor.

Royce W. Smith, 18, of 261 N. Ind. 5, Larwill, was booked in the Kosciusko County Jail at 1:45 p.m. Tuesday on that Level 6 felony.

According to the probable cause affidavit filed Sept. 25 in Kosciusko Superior Court I, Kosciusko County Sheriff’s Office deputies spoke with a girl – who is less than 16 years old – who told them she went to a sleepover at her friend’s house on July 4. When she woke up, Smith, who is her friend’s brother, had his hand down her pants and inappropriately touched her. The girl told police that after she woke up Smith left the room.

The girl told police she went back to sleep and, according to court papers, “when she woke Smith had her pants off of her and was on top of her attempting to have intercourse with her. She pushed him off of her and tried to get up and he pushed her back down on the bed. When she got up the second time, Smith got up and left the room.”

Smith’s bond was set at $6,000.
