An HIV-positive man was sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl when her mother intervened, holding him at gunpoint until police arrived.

The 39-year-old man was a youth sports coach who had been living in the home of the mother and daughter since January 13 after the man was involved in a bar fight. The man reportedly had coached youth baseball in the area for several years, and was apparently known to the family.

The girl told investigators that the man had raped her—and had done so on several previous occasions when she was 11, as well as on her 12th birthday. In the latest incident, the girl had gone to sleep when her mother returned home from the bar and, after the mother went to sleep, the man reportedly entered the girl’s room with nefarious intentions. At some point, the mother awoke and discovered the rape in progress. When police arrived, the suspect was being held at gunpoint by the mother. When questioned, the man admitted to being HIV-positive and not wearing protection during the violent act.

The man was arrested and taken into custody following the incident, and is held on $500,000 bond at the Cleveland County Jail. Fox News Digital reported that he was charged with "lewd or indecent proposals or acts to a child; engaging in a pattern of criminal offenses; exposing others to AIDS; rape, first degree; and rape by instrumentation.” (Theblaze.com; 1/27/24)
