A man who could not control his urges, raped a young girl and got her pregnant, according to police in Florida.
Boynton Beach police said that they have arrested 38-year-old Elvin Benitez-Lopez, after being accused of raping the young girl for more than 2 years.
Benitez-Lopez has been charged with 20 counts of raping a minor and one count of impregnating a child. He was booked into the Palm Beach County Jail, and he is being held without bail.
According to the police investigation, Benitez-Lopez began sexually assaulting the girl since she was 9 years old.
The first time the abuse happened was when Benitez-Lopez opened the bathroom door and touched the girl while she was showering.
Since then, he raped the girl multiple times when she took showers.
The incident came to light when the 11-year-old girl went to the Bethesda Hospital East, where she was told that she was pregnant.
Staff at the hospital called police to report a sexual assault.
During questioning, Benitez-Lopez told police that he raped the girl only once. It happened when the girl came out of the shower, and he saw her wrapped in a towel.
Benitez-Lopez commented that she looked like a grown woman.
He then had a moment of weakness, and raped her.
