MARION COUNTY, FL – Police have arrested a 68-year-old man for sexually assaulting an 8-year-old girl he says was asking for it.

The incident happened last July when Sydney “Dread” Markland allegedly lured the girl into his home by asking her help him carry food into his house.

Once inside, Markland sexually assaulted the little girl, police say, adding that DNA samples taken from the girl’s clothing matched Markland’s.

When questioned, Markland admitted to the assault but said the girl was dressed provocatively and that her actions suggested she wanted wanted some of his lovin’. Markland added that in his culture, his actions with the girl were totally acceptable.


Police believe Markland might have sexually assaulted other children in his neighborhood and are asking anyone with information about other possible victims to call Detective Daniel Pinder at 352-368-3508 or Crime Stoppers at 352-368-STOP.
