A young girl jumped off the roof of a building after her father sexually assaulted her several times, police in China said.

Changzhi County police said that the 13-year-old girl identified as Xiaoguo, fell to her death from the 36th floor of her high-rise residential building after her aunt notified the police about the sexual abuse she suffered at the hand of her father.

According to the police investigation, Xiaoguo had lived with her aunt Lv, since her parents divorced. Recently, the teenager’s father asked the aunt to send Xiaoguo to him for several days.

Xiaoguo went to her father, but returned to her aunt several days later, acting weird and refusing to eat. Xiaoguo revealed what her father did to her, and her aunt called the police.

A few days later, Xiaoguo jumped from the 36th floor of the high rise residential building. She left behind suicide notes.

Xiaoguo’s father was arrested and charged with rape.
