Springfield Police responded Sunday to a report of possible sex abuse in progress.
The parents told police they found the babysitter in a compromising position with one of the children.
Officers found James Edward Garrett, 34, in the home, serving as babysitter for a child.
Police arrested Garrett on one count of Sodomy in the first degree, one count of Sexual Abuse in the first degree and one count of Endangering the Welfare of a Minor.
Police ask anyone with information about Garrett to contact the Springfield Police Department.
Forgive me for kicking a couple when they are down, but, would you leave your child with someone who looks like that? Folks, never allow men to babysit your children unless you've known them for years and trust them implicitly.
