Convicted sex offender arrested for burglary, child abuse and criminal mischief

Approximately two weeks ago, upon learning that Vincent Kahn  was a convicted sex offender, his then girlfriend asked him to move out and no longer contact her. She learned that Kahn was convicted of lewd or lascivious conduct with a minor under 16 in 2009. Last weekend, Kahn returned to the residence, in the 1200 block of 13th Avenue SW in Vero Beach, and began pounding his fist on the door attempting to gain entry. The female and her four year old child were inside and called 9-1-1. Kahn broke the small glass window on the side of the front door with his fist and entered the home. He then punched the female in the face, her side, and back. He also punched the four year old child and shoved them to the ground.

Kahn went into the bedroom and took the home and car keys before fleeing the residence. Deputies responded and narrowly missed Kahn as he fled. Blood evidence was collected from the crime scene as deputies attempted to located Kahn. Approximately three hours later, Kahn was located by Deputy Brandon Dean, Deputy Christian Mathisen, and his canine partner Marco. Kahn was apprehended without incident.

Indian River County Sheriff Deryl Loar stated, “Today, a dangerous sex offender is off the streets and behind bars where he belongs. Kahn continued to harass the victim in this case after she made it clear that she did not want to date a sex offender. We encourage everyone to visit to find out more information about sex offenders living in your neighborhood.” Kahn was booked into the Indian River County Jail on counts of burglary of an occupied dwelling, child abuse, and criminal mischief. He is currently being held on $76,000.00 bond. Other potential charges are pending for violations of sex offender laws.
