WLWT News reports that a man has been arrested after a girl said he chased her through a Deer Park neighborhood. A 12-year-old claims that Justin Beamer chased her through the neighborhood and called out to her to stop, and he has been charged with criminal child endangerment, menacing and disorderly conduct.

The victim told police she was walking home after visiting a friend when a man started to follow her as she passed the H Bar. When she started to run, he continued to chase her.

After a half-mile pursuit, she arrived at a house where she knew someone and showed up in tears. She had called 911 and given a description of a white bearded man wearing a flannel shirt and red jacket.

Beamer was arrested close by, and was still wearing the outfit she described at his arraignment. He entered a not guilty plea and was released on a $1,500 bond.
