The Missoulian reports 21-year-old Zachary B. Sutton was arrested Tuesday. Justice of the Peace Karen Orzech set his bail at $100,000 during his initial appearance Wednesday.

Police responding to a noise complaint found the girl by herself in the apartment and the door appeared to have been kicked in.

The girl’s mother was found at a hospital, where she was being treated for a cut to the back of the head.
