A Hispanic mother living in Texas, whom we will call Ana Lucía to protect her identity, recently found out that her daughter was sexually abused by a close relative. And not just once, but several times, over a two-year period when she visited them for a month in the summer.
Luis Sánchez forced himself upon her
According to the Pasadena Police Department, the abuse occurred in an apartment located on Witter Street. Everything indicates that Luis Sánchez, 26, took advantage of the young girl every time he was alone with her when the other relatives were out running errands.
He approached the girl and forced her to perform indecent acts, which she, due to her young age, did not understand and neither wanted nor liked. Despite this, he pressured her to please him. Then, the evil man threatened her so that she wouldn’t tell anyone what had happened. Filed Under: Chronicle abuse girl vacation.
