A priest in Brazil had been arrested because of sexual assault. But what made it a lot worse is that the victim was a 5-year-old girl! The priest is identified as the 54-year-old Father Joao da Silva who had been teaching English in a local parish.
The acts were first suspected after the girl told her parents that she doesn’t want to attend the priest’s English class anymore. Due to her behavior, her parents decided to bring her to a psychologist who reinforced the suspection that there is abuse involved. The psychologist then instructed the parents to search her room for any evidence.
Upon doing so, the parents were surprised to see 6 disturbing drawings depicting thehorror of rape she experienced. One drawing shows a man appearing over a frightened girl. Another was a naked man in between a child’s leg.
“One of them that caught our attention shows the face of a naked man with an erect penis,” Karine Maia, from the Delegation for Stopping Crimes Against Women.
Meanwhile, Father Da Silva is now under the custody of the police.
