A 33-year-old man was taken to the Clark County Jail on Wednesday night after he was accused of forcibly taking his 8-year-old daughter from her mother — his ex-girlfriend — without permission.
Andrew Haemmerle, 5132 Ridgewood Road East, is detained on charges of felony burglary and misdemeanor interference with custody stemming from the incident the child’s mother reported, sheriff’s Sgt. Scott Elliott said.
According to the preliminary investigation, the mother told deputies that Haemmerle walked into her home, down the street at 5012 Ridgewood Road East, and “grabbed” their common child “against the child’s wishes” at about 5 p.m.
The woman told deputies she had gone out had given a 13-year-old girl permission to watch the 8-year-old. The woman was able to get the daughter back without further incident when she returned home, according to the sheriff’s office.
Deputies located Haemmerle at his residence and arrested him.
The burglary charge stems from the allegation that Haemmerle went into someone else’s home without permission and a secondary offense occurred there, Elliott said.
