MILWAUKEE -- Investigators call 38-year-old Tylo Ward a pedophile, saying he targets young girls. U.S. Marshals were searching for Ward, before he was eventually captured.

Ward was charged with three counts of sexual assault, including the repeated assault of one child. Court documents say the crimes took place between 2007 and 2010.

Officials say Ward would gain the confidence of a family, then when no adults were around, commit crimes against young girls who were defenseless.

A criminal complaint describes the victims as pre-teen girls, one as young as six years old. Before law enforcement could pick up the alleged pedophile, he changed locations, and potentially changed his appearance.

Ward is described as six feet, two inches tall, weighing about 190 pounds. Law enforcement officials believe he could have a bushy goatee.
