An Oklahoma City man is facing child sex abuse charges after a 4-year-old girl was taken to the hospital with injuries stemming from an alleged sexual assault.
Officers were called to the Integris Southwest Medical Center, Saturday afternoon, in regards to a child molestation report. When police arrived they met with the child's legal guardian, who said she had to work that day. So she told her husband, 24-year-old Andres Caal, to drop the child off at her sister's house.
It is not clear what time Caal actually dropped off the child, but at 11:30 a.m. but the sister told police she had just woke up and planned to take the young girl out for lunch when she noticed something on the butt area of the girl's pink sweat pants. When she tried to wipe it off she noticed it was blood.
The young girl, according to the sister did not want to be touched because she said that her butt hurt. When the two went to the bathroom, the sister said she saw that the girl was bleeding from her groin area. The sister called the guardian back to the home and told her that the young girl was hurt. From there they went to Integris to see a doctor.
After examining the girl, the doctor informed DHS and the police that the girl had a significant injury to her vaginal area that would need to be surgically repaired. The doctor told police, “I can say the victim's injury was from sexual abuse based off my physical examination.”
After investigating further, police eventually located Caal, who was hiding out at his grandmother's home. He was taken into custody without incident on one count of First-Degree Rape of a Child Under 16-Year-Old. He also had an outstanding city warrant for speeding. His bond was set at $50,000.
