Another 7 year old victim of alleged sexual abuse

On the heels of the rape of a four year old girl, there is a new report of a sexual attack on an innocent child. Early Sunday morning, another man allegedly destroyed the trust of his own family. In the Jane Usher Boulevard area of Belize City, a woman found a disturbing situation involving her husband and her seven-year-old daughter. Afraid for her life, she later fled to her mother’s house with her one-year-old and seven year old daughters. She has spent much of her day dealing with the police and was unavailable for comment. News Five, however, spoke to the child’s grandmother who recounted Sunday’s traumatic experience.

Voice of:  Grandmother of 7 year old victim

“Kill me daughter, kill me children, kill me—everybody he wants to kill. So with that.”

Jose Sanchez

“Are they married?

Voice of:  Grandmother of 7 year old victim

“Yes sir, they married.”

Jose Sanchez

“How long were they together?”

Voice of:  Grandmother of 7 year old victim

“Bout eight years now because the child seven years old—the oldest.”

Jose Sanchez

How many kids they have together?”

Voice of:  Grandmother of 7 year old victim

“They have three and now she’s expecting another baby.”

Jose Sanchez

“And this one in particular is seven years old.”

Voice of:  Grandmother of 7 year old victim

“Yes, seven years old.”

Jose Sanchez

“Exactly what did your daughter tell you happened with the child?”

Voice of:  Grandmother of 7 year old victim

“Well she came here Sunday afternoon. She told me mama when I was sleeping, ih seh ih husband took the little girl out of the bed—the little gilr took her out of the bed—and ker ahn ina the next bedroom. And then she woke up a short while after. And when she wake up, she went to use the bathroom and noticed that she neva see the little girl—ih daughter—nor the husband. And dah so when she check, she gone dah bathroom and neva see dehn neither. And when she look on the bed, ih seh ih see ih husband over the child, on top of her, making a lot of movements. And then she mi so frightened. She so frightened that she didn’t say anything because she neva know if he would kill them or what if she mi say anything. But she neva know what fi do; she got so scared.

So that was it there.  She didn’t tell him anything; she kept quiet like that and then afterwards ih come home here and told us what happened. Then she say she have to report it.”

Jose Sanchez

“And the police; have they done a rape kit? Have they done the necessary tests?”

Voice of:  Grandmother of 7 year old victim

“Yes, the doctor take tests on the child and said it was attempt murder because ih see how the child look. And so it was attempt—ih seh ih neva rape ahn, but it was attempt rape. If the mother neva get up, mama I know she mi wah rape mi little girl—ih mi wah rape her.”

“Aha, the police yes. He gone to court today, but mi daughter no come back yet so I noh know what happen noh?”

“Today yes, today.”

Jose Sanchez

“Yes, she have to live with me; can’t go back. She’s afraid. She no want go back. In fact, she noh want to go back with him—she say she can’t live with him again after weh he do di little girl. So ih can’t live with ahn again. But they’re married, dah ih husband.”

News Five was unable to reach the police press officer for comment on whether or not charges were made against the father.

    This is another piece of disturbing news.

    sadly, gruesome ordeals like this of children in Belize are all too common. A sympton of unhealthy society.

    In this particular case the details hardly matter, when a father preys on his own daughter in the middle of the night.

    This father is “sick”, and not fit for a normal society.

    The mother in this story is also disturbing to me. She caught her husband attempting to rape her daughter, and she did nothing to stop him, instead she walked way fearing for her life. The next day she fled in fear of her life, not directly to the police but to her mother’s house.

    Where is the law that will protect our children’s right, and safety in Belize. What are mother’s actually doing about that.

  2. Rod says:

    Hang his @$$ by eh … hang him hang him high this truly is the most useless pm and gov ever all these things going on because their is no leadership in the country so everybody is doing what they please because they know we have an impotent pm and gov.

  3. Victoria says:

    cust his thing off Lorena Babbit here we come

  4. RT in Vegas says:

    This time we have a witness, there is no way this man should get off free from this. If we can’t protect our children, God help us all because the future is going to be drastic.

  5. Barack Obama says:

    Unbelievable….I would like to hear the Father’s side of the story…before I make any conclusions…Perhaps the mother is also crazy.

  6. Xaan says:

    Husband or no damn husband she SHOULD NOT have anything to do with a sick man like him! News like this makes me really upset! The justice system should hang his @$$ so high and leave him there so the world can see!

    This has gone from bad to worst! what is happening to these sick …………. now a days!

  7. MadDOG says:

    we still got one more report right and that is good, some mothers see things and never talk about it, I guess this mother should have taken a 2 by 4 and wap this sick man on the head , then report him. I pray God provide for the woman who will stay with out a home . these sick men should be jailed , because if the come out they will try this again, i let justic do a good Job, and if he comes out, belize needs better judges that have a conscience. i dont agree with Barack comments, no mother can be crazy when a kid looks scared . i hope to hear what the doc has to say.

  8. Irene Aranda says:

    As sad as d situation was we can not judge d mother in anyway..u n i would have did the unthinkable to protect d child from any further damage.this man is sick this wasnt d first time he did it,i believe he has been doing some $#!% to this child before so his sick habit was swallowing him he cared less if d mother was around.

    That woman sleeps darn hard.when u have kids ur sleep shouldnt be so deep.

    We need a change in d law for raping these innocent babies,their world r being shattered right before those who was suppose to help them.

    The mother did what she think was safe even if it created a selfish act cause he probably would have acted violently as well after all he is a sick…………..

    My heart goes out to d family especially d child as for d socal dad i hope he rots in jail.

    I am begging social worker,counsel advisers n protection from d public for this child n anyone else who can be of great help to d little angel.

    I will keep u teddy bear in my prayer!!! The world loves you.

  9. Marta says:

    A similar case is happening in Valley of Peace.

  10. Sunshine says:

    These things happen all over the world but Belize is too small for so many occurences. I say hang him in the middle of swing bridge and let everyone that pass get a piece of him, with a knife , a whip, a blade whatever, he deserves it all, and any family member that supports these kinds of people needs to be hung right next to them.

  11. Elgin Martinez says:

    The Belizean people are crying out for help and yet the GOB fail to address these issues.

  12. Gilda says:

    my,my…God help us all….

  13. fromafar says:

    put him in jail, and let him get his due molestation in there…

  14. Whizer says:

    These things pain my heart and make me very mad. to the point of public display… an eye for an eyes.. at some point we will need to set an example… Rape his !@$$$.. and if public display push 3 broom sticks… for thous M@##*^* F@%& there should be no mercy… no excuse when it comes to children…

  15. someone says:

    Marta..call 911 and denounce it. Or call Chan 5 anonymously and give all the information so they can pass it to the right people. Don’t sit there infront of your computer. Go and make a difference!

  16. Racism in Belize says:

    They will quickly charge this man and he will be held without bail, how about the case from last week with the 4 year old, why aren’t the Police as quick to charge. in Belize a hispanic woman who charges for sex is a prostitute or whore, but a Creole woman “just di hussle”. Pedophiles and child molesters come in all shapes and races, let us apply the law equallly.

  17. vicky says:

    THIS ANIMAL NEEDS TO GO TO JAIL SO HE CAN BE SOMEBODY !@#$%. DAMN !

  18. MADDYVANDIJKDEREALISTO says:

    Jail does not cure mental illness, jail is not an option.

    Women need to fight back, and with the law on their side it should be very possible to win the war against violence against women and children.

    women should no longer be silent about rape in Belize.

  19. ANGEL says:

    FOR ME THE DAY THAT EVER HAPPENS THE MOMENT I SEE MY LITTLE GIRLS DAD ON TOP OF HER WITH ANYTHING I WOULD HIT HIM MAKING SURE HE DOESNT GET UP UNTIL THE POLICE COMES BY .. I HAVE A EIGHT YEAR OLD DAUGHTER AND BELIEVE ME I TAKE GOOD CARE OF THEM ANYTIME YOU GO IN HER ROOM THERE IS SOMETHING THAT MAKES NOISE SO WHEN SOMEONE COMES IN HER ROOM I KNOW .. THESE MEN ARER SICK IS A CICO THEY SHOULD BE IN A HOSPITAL IN CRAZY HOUSE AND IN JAIL THE MOMENT THEY DO IT … MOTHERS TAKE CARE OF YOUR CHILDREN …

  20. Shar says:

    This is what the Prime Minister needs to set down a law for. It breaks my heart to hear these babies lives are destroying one after the next. We as mother carry these babies for 9months goes through life and death to bring forth them and these low class @$$holes will just take advantage of our little angels before they even start to know what life is. Come on Belize we should not stop until the Goverment,Churches whoever is responsible serve these animals with the punishment we think they deserve. these children are so innocent to be carrying these cruel vision with them for the rest of their lives..I say line up these @$$hole and put channel 5 camera on them let the country see their faces and know who they are. Embrasses and punish them in everyway possible..

  21. NATURAL MYSTIC says:

    In other countries you know what would happen to this sick molester????? he’d be killed by the people and they would do it without any remorse. he would deserve it and i wouldnt feel sorry for him. people like him you cant feel sorry for they are sick and disgusting. Did they forgot where they came from?????????????how could you rob a child of her innocence? anyone that does this doesnt deserve to be in society with normal people. i would have someone take his @$$ tea dinner and tea non stop so he can feel what that child felt………………

  22. Beautiful says:

    sicko!!these men need to be punish and tortured slowly…As a strong woman i can say i have been in a similar situation when i was younger.My oldest sister went through hell with my father well he is not fit to be called a father that beast of a man !as poor as my mom was took all the kids and ran away but he is like the devil he follow.He is like a fungus everywhere looking for my mom and beat my mom….i have brothers and when they were little they feared him.but when the time came and when one of them became a man he had it coming my brother make sure he had all his teeth knocked out.And told him if you ever lay a hand on my mom or try to do bad things to my sister i will kill you !!!For that reason he have changed and now we are all grown we forgave but never forgot.I do not trust him around my kids that’s for sure!!!Now he is old i hope he ask god to forgive his sins and if not he’ll rot in hell!!!for that i am a strong woman…i hope these kids get justice!God bless them..I pray for you two little angels!Mothers please be aware and keep an eye on your kids…

  23. aron stephen says:

    dis $#!%# is realy sad men we gat to starte to heng dis men who are missing our country an mothers u all gat to stop being so erisponsabel

  24. so sad says:

    It angers me to read about this situation. We can’t trust our own biological father.This really SUCKS. I do believe these things are happening everyday and all around us. What is going on with these men are they so hot that they cant control their hormones or go to a bathroom and read a porno book and masturbate. Damn it. I have a 9 yrs old princess and I am so afraid. But like my mom always says “you can’t trust your own teeth for it bites your tongue”.

  25. yahdycupp uptown says:

    Watch d bigger picture!that is an act of a satanic ritual,attacting d pure souls

  26. subKonshus says:

    I sincerely think that the law needs to be amended to the effect that “No mother shall be held criminally accountable to anything she does to a man who rapes her daughter”. Only a mother knows what she is going through. There’s no love like a mothers love, and equally, there is no wrath like a mother’s wrath when it comes to protecting and vindicating her child. This should not be stifled. Any man who rapes a child should be left to the mercy of the mother of that child. This is the kind of amendment we need in our laws, to protect our children. Let mothers deal with rapists like these….totally. Arrest them, hand-cuff them, put them in a cell with mommy and let “Mommy Justice” prevail.

  27. susan says:

    I think the mother need a good F@%@#$ lick cause if I see wha man di rape my pickni i mi wha jump at him ,i neva mi wha worry if i pregnant or what… imagine afraid them time i mi wha pic up my picni and run through that door …..then burn fu him B@$%@#$%………one thing wasn’t the child screaming …….mmmmh mother is convicted just as father …cause she uphold it ……

  28. reality says:

    Belizean and government please wake up and take child abuse serious remember they are the future for our country Belize. Need to have a march/protest PREVENT CHILD ABUSE! i feel bad for those kids who are being abuse and silent about it start to respect children every April which is Child abuse month n march with a blue ribbon to signify prevent child abuse.

  29. Voice says:

    she shuda mi gone fo wa frying pan and lash da man ina e head and continue beet a ina e head till e ka move. he to bloody chancy d tek advantage awa baby. kill d mada**&&&.

  30. Earl Grey says:

    We need to MAKE AN EXAMPLE OUT OF HIM TO PUT A STOP TO THIS INSANITY.

  31. general says:

    this is what the pm should pay more attention the “men amendment” get rid of the suckers and lets them be “passed” let the “men amendment pass” i bet he dont care as there is nothing in it for him. he cant make anymoney with this men amendment…………….

    wake up mr pm….ur day deh come!!!!! u need the people rem that.

  32. proud Belizean says:

    This is very disturbing but a lot of Belizean women need to pay attention to what’s going on with their children not only little girls little boys too. They need to wake up. There are many many little girls suffering from these big lazy men in Belize that are raping them over and over and they are afraid to talk. Mothers must start talking to children.

  33. Lost in Belize says:

    I agree with everybody who are concerned about this mother, I don’t care how scared I am of a man, if I see anybody over my son or daughter, that fear will automatically go away, the strongest instinct next to survival is maternal instinct if not stronger. I’m sorry but I feel like the mother needs a slap too. as for the father, I wait to see what happens caz I’m pretty sure I will be disappointed with his punishment

  34. Melanie says:

    Whatever happened to reflex reactions? Girl you should have knocked him the hell out! frying pan, knife, bat… anything!!! Nevertheless you did a good thing by reporting it and keep those girls away from that monster!!!

  35. Mystique says:

    My heart breaks every time I hear cases like this. A father should protect his child from the monsters in the world, but its sad when the monster turns out to be the father.
    Men like him should be castrated. I agree that the mother act slowly, when your child is in danger that’s when insanity should step in. ……. would not have recover after I finish with him.

  36. kendra Gordon Palacip says:

    I love my baby brother, but what he did to his daughter and to his wife is not write at all.i am a mother and wife as well, i could have never just stand there and watch him over my child! Christine,i know that you was afraid, but you must protect you kids any and every chance you can. He need to be lock up! !!!

  37. ida pott says:

    IT SAD TO SEE WE WOMAN , FROM THIS WORLD NOT ONLY BELIZE CAUSE U HEAR THESE STORY NOW IN BELIZE , THIS IS SOMETHING THAT HAS BEEN HAPPENING TO KIDS IN BELIZE AND THE MOTHERS NEVER SAID ANYTHING , WOMAN SHOULD NEVER BE WITH A MAN THAT ABUSE THEM , ESPECIALLY IF THEY HAVE KIDS BUT WOMEN FROM BELIZE , HAVE LOW ESTEEM , AND CONFIDENT OF THEM SELF . AND WE WOMEN OF BELIZE SHOULD PUT OUR SELF TOGETHER , NOT TO JUDGE EACH OTHER BUT TO HELP EACH OTHER ONCE WE ARE ABUSE THE FIRST TIME , NOT BECAUSE U GET MARRIED U HAVE TO STAY WITH THAT MAN , WE WOMAN NEED TO STOP LISTEN TO WHAT PEOPLE SAY , CAUSE FOR ONE PEOPLE DON’T FEED YOU AND YOUR KIDS PEOPLE DON’T PAY YOUR RENT AND THE MOST IMPORTANT PEOPLE , WILL NOT TAKE THE VERBAL, HITTING AND MENTAL ABUSE FOR YOU . SO WE WOMAN HAVE TO HAVE TO GET TOGETHER AND DO GOOD FOR OUR SELF AND KIDS , AND FOR THESE FATHER , UNCLE BROTHER COUSIN FRIEND , I SWEAR IF THAT WAS MY KIDS I WOULD CUT OFF YOUR …. WHEN YOU ARE ASLEEP WOULD NOT CARE TO GO TO JAIL FOR MY KIDS . BUT TOO GOD IS WATCHING .
