Massillon, OH – On Saturday, Juan Bautista, 25, was arrested after he was allegedly caught raping a 2-year-old girl in her home. The victim’s father was awoken by his daughter’s loud cries and ran into her room where he reportedly discovered the suspect sexually assaulting the toddler.
When the man pulled his daughter away from her attacker, Bautista ran to the kitchen and returned with a knife and stabbed the man, according to the police report.
Bautista then fled the scene and was quickly captured at his Ute Avenue residence.
The little girl was admitted to Akron Children’s Hospital and her father was taken to Affinity Medical Center where he was treated for stab wounds to his hand, ear and thigh and released.
Bautista has been charged with rape, felonious assault and gross sexual imposition. He is currently being held in the Stark County Jail on an Immigration and Customs Enforcement detainer.
Bautista is in the country illegally from Guatemala, according to prosecutors.
