A Louisville man was arrested after he fractured an 8-year-old’s skull with a shovel Friday and sexually assaulted her, according to police. Cane L. Madden, 29, has been charged with first-degree rape, assault and robbery in connection with the attack that reportedly took place in the California neighborhood. According to an arrest citation, Louisville Metro Police officers responded about 4:30 p.m. Friday to a report of a 8-year-old girl who had been hit in the head with a shovel and robbed of her iPad. The girl was taken to the emergency room at Norton Children’s Hospital, where a doctor told detectives she suffered a right skull fracture, multiple cuts and bruises to the head and “significant bruising and tearing of the vaginal wall, which is indicative of sexual assault,” according to the arrest report.
