A man from Louisiana has been arrested for reportedly raping and impregnating an 11-year-old girl. The alleged perpetrator Wendell Sanchez had dropped off the girl at the hospital before fleeing once the cops arrived. Sanchez, 34, took the victim to the hospital after she complained of stomach ache. The hospital staff found the 11-year-old to be pregnant and informed the police about the case but as the authorities came to the hospital, Sanchez escaped, reports The Sun. The Louisiana man had taken the girl to the hospital last Sunday on October 18. He waited outside the hospital in his four-wheeler as the girl was being treated inside. Deputies with the Ascension Parish Sheriff’s Office reported to the hospital after being tipped off that the girl was pregnant with Sanchez suspected of being the father.

Once the cops moved to arrest the man, he fled in his car. Later, he abandoned the car and ran inside a local apartment complex. The deputies sought the help of the Gonzales Police Department to track him down. They arrested him after they found him hiding on a patio. At the time of arrest, he was also found to be in possession of drugs and drug paraphernalia, said the deputies. Sanchez was charged with multiple charges including first-degree rape with a victim under the age of 13, resisting an officer, possession of schedule II CDS, drug paraphernalia, criminal trespass, simple criminal damage to property, possession of marijuana, illegal use of a controlled dangerous substance in the presence of a person under 17, creation of a clandestine lab, no drivers license, and no tail lamps. He is currently in custody, held at the Ascension Parish Jail on a bond of $540,000. 


In a similar horror story from last year, a man was accused of raping his two step-daughters from two separate relationships. The man's second stepdaughter also gave birth to his child. The man in his 40s sexually abused his step-daughters repeatedly and told one of them who was aged 8 that he owned her genitalia. He threatened to kill her family if she spoke about the abuse, reported the Daily Mail. He also withheld food if she didn't submit herself to his demands. The man was sentenced to 18 years in jail by County Court Victoria judge, Paul Higham. The judge told the court that the 8-year-old step-daughter was "thrown around like a rag doll" and often sexually assaulted as she screamed in horror. The court heard that in one instance he made the girl perform oral sex on him as they watched TV. He pleaded guilty to six counts each of incest and an indecent act with a child, and one count of common assault.  The girl told her mother of the abuse when she was aged ten but revealed the extent of the abuse only when she was in high school. After the relationship between the man and her mother ended, he was married to another woman for six years and he started abusing her children as well. One of the two victims was a 16-year-old daughter from his new marriage. She became pregnant with his kid but he denied abusing her, claiming he was not "into kids."

"Each of the incest charges could be viewed, and I find, as instances of violent rape. You had become part of your victim's family, your offending occurred in the home where your victims were entitled to feel safe," said Judge Paul Higham during the court hearing. "As a parental figure, they had a right to look to you for guidance, for parental care, for love and security. Instead, at the time of your offending, their respective homes became the place you preyed on them for the purpose of your own sexual gratification."
