(Scroll down for video) A father lived through every parent’s worst nightmare when a guest in his home tried to molest his daughter.

Police in Minnesota, arrested 28-year-old Derrick Aaron Kinchen, after the father found him naked, and lying naked next to his 7-year-old daughter at his Minnetonka home.

Kinchen, who is from Lansing, Michigan, had rented a room through Minnesota Airbnb, while he was in town for a wedding, according to a criminal complaint.

When Kinchen returned to the house on Sunday night, instead of going to the rented room, he went to the bedroom of the host’s daughter.

The homeowner told the police that he went to investigate after noticing the lights in his daughter’s room were on.

He was shocked to find Kinchen lying next to his daughter, whose nightgown had been pulled up.

The host told the police that when he started screaming, Kinchen grabbed his wallet and jacket and ran out of the house.

Officers used a K-9 to track down the suspect. He was found sitting in a neighbor’s partially covered fishing boat.

Kinchen, who wore nothing but the jacket, was bitten by the K-9 before he was arrested.

The 7-year-old girl was evaluated at Children’s Hospital. While talking to the investigators, the girl said that Kinchen had whispered something about keeping a secret.

She said that he tried to pull off her underwear, but she resisted and pulled it back, according to the police report.

Kinchen was charged with criminal sexual assault. He is being held on $250,000 bail.
