A Montgomery, Pennsylvania, court has at last found an illegal immigrant guilty of breaking into a Hatfield Township apartment and raping a six-year-old girl while her parents slept in another room, documents reveal.
A jury found Oscar Herrera guilty of six of the charges against him, including rape and burglary. However, the jury found him not guilty on a seventh, a misdemeanor charge of loitering and prowling.
Police arrested the 29-year-old Herrera after he broke into the apartment last November by pushing through a living room window. Police alleged he then crept into the little girl’s room and raped her in her own bed.
According to a police report, the little girl’s cries of “Stop” and “Why are you doing this?” awoke her 11-year-old brother, who ran to the girl’s stepfather to inform him of the ongoing attack.
