Trigger warning: Child sex assault
FAYETTEVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA: An NC man has impregnated both his girlfriend and her daughter. The latter is 13 years old and the pregnancy is a result of the sexual assault the minor had been enduring for the past two years. The incident came to light after the girl went missing and authorities were alerted. She was picked up from an apartment by emergency services and an investigation revealed she was 4.5 months pregnant. The girl then detailed her ordeal during which she also revealed that her mom's boyfriend, Eduardo G. Rubio allegedly tried to run her over.
In the past we've reported on a case that is similar to this one. In 2019, Deon Austin Welch from California was convicted of raping his girlfriend's 11-year-old daughter over a period of two years. He was first arrested in 2017 when the victim gave birth and a DNA test determined Welch as the father. Terrifying details of his crime emerged as the case moved to trial. He was sentenced to 230 years in prison by Riverside County Superior Judge Bernard Schwartz. "If a defendant ever deserved a maximum sentence, in a case such as this, Mr. Welch deserves it," Schwartz told Welch during his sentencing hearing. He also informed the 30-year-old that he would have to register as a sex offender in the scenario that a future law allows him to walk free before serving his full sentence.
Rubio used own urine to tamper with pregnancy test of the victim
Rubio was dating the victim's mother for the past four years but she did not have an inkling that he was assaulting her daughter. Rubio reportedly tried to tamper with a pregnancy test the girl was given during a medical examination in October, using his own urine. He was aware of the girl's pregnancy and the charges he faces include statutory rape, attempted first-degree murder, attempted murder of an unborn child, first-degree kidnapping, and three counts of assault by strangulation, according to arrest records.
According to reports, Rubio and the girl got into an argument sometime in the third week of August. He then proceeded to strangle her and continued to do so until she choked and fell unconscious. He then got into his car and allegedly tried to run her over, the girl told authorities. She was left with multiple injuries on her neck, face, shoulders, arms, and knees, resulting from this incident. Rubio is currently being held at the Cumberland County Jail and his bail is set a little over $1 million.
