A Blue Island man accused of sexually assaulting a 4-year-old girl in Calumet Park was ordered held without bond on Wednesday. Police found him smoking a cigarette in a closet after the alleged crime.

State's Attorney's Office spokeswoman Tandra Simonton said Demetrio Campbell, 27, tried to lure the victim and her older sister away from their home while they were playing outside on Sunday. The girls refused, ran inside and locked the doors.

Witnesses said they saw Campbell cross the street and kick the door in, after failed attempts to get the girls to let him in. Prosecutors said the suspect demanded one of the two older people in the house to leave the bedroom – that person was the one who called the cops.

Campbell allegedly raped the 4-year-old girl on the bed. Police found him smoking in a closet when they arrived. Judge Edward Bowden ordered Campbell ordered the suspect to undergo psychiatric evaluation at the Markham courthouse on Wednesday.

Campbell has also been convicted of felony burglary and aggravated robbery in the past.
