A DeFuniak Springs man is in the Walton County Jail facing a series of charges, including sexual battery.
 
Walton County Sheriff's Deputies say Buddy Lee Curry, 41, was in the midst of a string of burglaries Friday morning when he broke into a home on Walnut Drive.
 
Once inside, they say Curry found a 17-year old girl sleeping in one of the bedrooms, laid on-top of her, threatened to kill her, then began groping her.
 
The girl managed to break free and alerted her parents.
 
Police say Curry ran out of the house and drove away.
 
Deputies caught up with Curry a short time later and arrested him on a number of charges, including sexual battery and burglary.
 
He's being held on a $105,000 bond.
