A 23-year-old man arrested for sexually assaulting a 6-year-old girl blames the girl for the crime he committed.
A 23-year-old Florida man, Andres Bartolome Juan, who was arrested for allegedly raping a 6-year-old girl, has told the police that it was the child's fault that he sexually assaulted her.
According to Huffington Post, Juan allegedly assaulted the girl twice in the laundry room of an apartment complex in Lake Worth, Florida, on January 31, 2015.
The reports have it that the girl who had been riding her bicycle around the premises of the laundry, went into the room and was allegedly attacked Juan.
When the child's mother saw the abandoned bicycle and began calling for her daughter, the child ran out of the laundry room with a panicked look on her face.
Juan's belt was unbuckled and he tried to escape through the window when a neighbour who saw and recognized him, fingered him to the police.
While a DNA sample was being taken, Juan allegedly told police:
"It’s the girl’s fault this happened."
Juan is being held without bond, according to information posted on the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office website. He's been charged with two counts of sexual battery by someone over the age of 18 against a victim under the age of 12.
