Police in Upper Darby, Pennsylvania say A 5-year-old girl has contracted a sexually transmitted disease after being sexually assaulted by a teenage family member earlier this year.

The suspect who is 18-years old, has not been named due to the age of the victim, has been charged with rape of a child, indecent sexual assault, endangering the welfare of a child and related offenses for the assault that took place a few months ago, police said.

“I guess the best way for me to describe this guy is an animal,” Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood said.

Police said they were made aware of the rape on Tuesday when the girl’s mother had taken the 5-year-old girl to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

Doctors called police after test results came back showing the girl had tested positive for chlamydia, Chitwood said.

Chitwood said that ‘At first hearing the news, the mother was uncooperative”, however then she told detectives she had been aware of her daughter’s sexuall assault, which occured in the 18-year-old’s bedroom.

In disturbing detail, the little girl points out the family member and horribly says that “he stuck his pee pee into my private parts,” Chitwood said. ”

The little girl, 5 years old, anatomically knew what private parts meant: her vagina and buttocks.”

Chitwood says that, “The suspect is a native of Ecuador and has denied raping the child, but he did admit to having the STD.”

The teen was arrested and is being held in the county prison on $250,000 bail. It is not yet known if he has an attorney.

The girl’s mother has yet to be charged in the case, however Chitwood did say an investigation is ongoing.
