(Scroll down for video) A brave young girl managed to fight off a pedophile who attempted to rape her inside her home.
The man followed the 13-year-old girl home from school in San Jose, California, and then tried to sexually assault her inside her own home.
Police arrested 31-year-old Mohammad Khaliqi, on charges of burglary, attempted sexual assault and false imprisonment.
Police said that Khaliqi, forced his way into the girl’s home, pushed her to a corner and attempted to sexually assault her.
However, the girl hit him in the face and managed to fight him off. Khaliqi then fled from the home.
The brave girl then hid in a closet and sent a text message to her father, begging him to come home.
“Daddy come home now. Some guy tried to rape me,” she texted her father from the closet.
Police reviewed the family’s surveillance videos and released a photo of the suspect. Police said that this was not the first time that Khaliqi attempted to rape a woman.
Police said that Khaliqi followed a 28-year-old woman into the bathroom of a grocery store last month, and he attempted to rape her, but she managed to escape.
Both incidents took place in broad daylight.
