Dad ‘rapes daughter on her 13th birthday as he couldn’t afford a gift’
A father is accused of allegedly raping his daughter on her 13th birthday as a “present”.
The 32-year-old is said to have told cops that he conducted the sick act because he couldn’t afford to buy her a gift.
The dad had allegedly waited for his wife to leave the house in Chipaya, Bolivia before raping his daughter.
To be alone with his daughter, the accused father made an excuse that he would spend time alone with the teen to celebrate her birthday.
Local reports said that the unnamed father had been allegedly caught attacking the teen by the girl’s mother at their home.
Caught in the act, the man threatened his partner so she would keep quiet about the incident. But she called the police, and the dad was arrested on suspicion of raping his own child on October 4.
While being quizzed by cops, the father allegedly claimed that he ‘did not have enough money to buy the girl a present’.
So as an alternative he decided to “give her his own gift”, he told the police.
Carmen Miranda, Oruro Equal Opportunities official, said that the dad “took advantage” of the girl.
“There was sexual aggression against a 13-year-old girl, and the sad thing is that the suspect is her father who took advantage of the victim while he was alone with her”, Carmen Miranda told local media.
Police said an investigation is ongoing and the dad has not been named just to protect the identity of his daughter.
He remains in police custody while the teen girl receives psychological support.
