The attempted rape took place Monday, July 27. The individual, who lives in a house near the girl’s, entered her home and attempted to engage in sexual relations with her. Upon realizing what his intentions were, relatives alerted police, but the suspect fled before they arrived.
Sal National Police squadron chief Roberto Fernandes told A Semana Online that the case will be sent to court. “As the suspect did not consummate the rape, we’re going to send the case to the court,” said Fernandes.
