MEXICO CITY – A man was arrested for raping his 14-year-old daughter and then selling her for 5,000 pesos (about $365) to his buddy, who also sexually abused her, the Mexican Attorney General’s Office said.
The two men and one of the girl’s brothers, who failed to prevent the abuse, were arrested by the Federal Police in Huixquilucan, a city in Mexico state, which surrounds the Federal District and forms part of the Mexico City metropolitan area, the AG’s office said.
The girl reported the abuse to the AG’s office’s special unit for violence against women and people trafficking, or Fevimtra, at the urging of neighbors, officials said.
The Federal Police tracked down and arrested the unidentified suspects, the AG’s office said.
The three suspects were carrying several knives and ammunition at the time of their arrest, the AG’s office said.
The girl is receiving psychological counseling from specially trained AG’s office personnel, officials said.
