Police arrested a 75-year-old tutor for allegedly assaulting an 11-year-old girl he was mentoring.
According to reports, the great-grandparents of the girl discovered the abuse when her younger sister gave them the victim's diary. She asked her great-grandfather to read the diary for her because she couldn't read.
When the great-grandfather read the diary, he reached out to the school principal immediately. The principal, then, informed law enforcement about the abuse.
Investigators said the perpetrator gained the trust of the victim and her family. In fact, he was tutoring another sibling of the victim. The child had been assaulted several times according to detectives. They also determined that the tutor had been giving gifts to the child.
The young victim "had been reaching out for help by acting meaner than usual to her siblings and leaving her diary in different places," according to police. Jacob Beltran, "San Antonio student's diary leads to arrest of tutor," www.mysanantonio.com (Oct. 25, 2017).
