A 13-year-old girl alleges she's been forced to sleep in a living room, alongside a middle-aged man once convicted of murder. 

Huron police arrived at a home in the 900 block of Main St. on Aug. 10, after the girl locked herself inside a car and her mother called police, according to a Huron police report.

The mother and her live-in boyfriend claim they're trying to obtain custody of the girl, who has been living with her grandfather for the past six years, according to the report.

When police coerced the girl out of the vehicle at nearly midnight on Aug. 11, she told police a 45-year-old man is "constantly picking on her," and the pair sleep in a living room together at night.

The mother and her boyfriend told police they haven't yet made proper sleeping arrangements for the girl, who just recently started living with them, according to the report.

The boyfriend told them the man who lives with them "was convicted of murder over 20 years ago in California," according to the report.

In the report, the mother said she no longer wants the convicted man living in her home.

Police demanded the woman allow her daughter to sleep in her bedroom for now.

Additionally, they explained the eviction process to her and forwarded the case to Erie County Children Services for review.
