A DAD allegedly raped his daughter on her 13th birthday as a “present” because he couldn’t afford to buy her a gift.
The 32-year-old, who hasn’t been named, is understood to have been caught attacking the teen by the girl’s mother at their home in Chipaya, Bolivia.
He had allegedly waited for his wife to leave the house before raping his daughter after saying he would spend time alone with her to celebrate her birthday.
The dad threatened his wife but she called police and he was arrested.
While being quizzed by cops, he allegedly claimed he “did not have enough money to buy the girl a present” so he decided to “give her his own gift”.
He remains in custody while his daughter is receiving psychological support.
Oruro Equal Opportunities official Carmen Miranda told local media: “There was a 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.”
The investigation continues.
