A man raped his young relative while her mother was away and her brother slept in another room.

The Texas man was arrested and charged with repeatedly raping his 11-year-old relative, using adult toys and showering with her.

38-year-old Silas Wirth of San Antonio, was arrested on charges of continuing sexual abuse of a young child.

Wirth was finally arrested after the victim told her mother about the months of sexual abuse and she called police.

Police said that during the initial interview, Wirth confessed to all the allegations made by the child.

Police said that the suspect admitted that “any chance he got, he did it,” and that “he did everything the girl said he did.”

However, he later changed his story and blamed the victim, saying that she initiated the sexual encounters and that he asked her if she liked it.

The 11-year-old girl said that it started with Wirth showing her pornography on her cell phone and asking if she liked it. Then, as time went on, Wirth eventually took showers together with the girl and raped her.

In some cases, he used adult toys while sexually assaulting her, according to the affidavit. Bail for Wirth was set at $75,000.
