WESTMINSTER, Md. — A man has been arrested and charged after he was accused of raping his girlfriend's 11-year-old daughter in Westminster.
According to charging documents, the girl told investigators that she was being raped and sexually assaulted by her mother's boyfriend, 36-year-old Jose Indalecio Rosales, since 2018. She said Rosales would molest her when her mother was at work or when she wasn't around.
Authorities were notified of the sexual assault after the girl's mother caught Rosales in her daughter's bed touching her "private part" with his hand on August 24. She told authorities that the young girl's bed was in a shared one bedroom they rented from the basement of a home. The mother said when she observed the incident she got upset and called Rosales back to their bed.
The mother said when Rosales was out of the house she asked her daughter about the incident. The young girl told her mother that Rosales would force her to undress for him, he would make her watch pornography, and would place his "private part" in her "private part", which she said was very painful.
When authorities questioned the girl about the alleged sexual abuse, she told them Rosales would tell her not to tell her mom or teachers at school. When asked how many times Rosales raped her, she told investigators that it was approximately 110 times.
On August 28, investigators took the girl and her mother to Carroll Hospital Center to conduct a Sexual Assault Forensic Exam. A pediatrician discovered that the girl's results were abnormal due to her age. They told investigators that she had damage to her vagina that were consistent with repeated penetration, which confirmed the report of abuse.
Rosales was charged with two counts of second-degree rape, two counts of sex abuse of minor, and two counts of sex abuse of minor with continuing course of conduct.
