A man may spend the rest of his life in prison for raping a young girl and leaving her with severe injuries.

25-year-old Edwin Caizaguano raped the 10-year-old girl inside an apartment in Brooklyn, New York.

Caizaguano fled from the scene and police launched a manhunt for him. He was eventually tracked down and arrested in Saint Paul, Minnesota.

Meanwhile, the 10-year-old victim was rushed to a hospital, where she underwent surgery for the horrific injuries she suffered during the rape.

Caizaguano faced 25 years to life in prison on the top charge alone if he would have chosen to go to trial.

However, in a plea deal with prosecutors, Caizaguano pleaded guilty to predatory sexual assault of a child, and he was sentenced to between 10 years and life in prison.

Brooklyn Supreme Court Justice Vincent Del Giudice told Caizaguano that the only reason he considered the “lenient sentence” was to spare that child any further trauma by having to testify in court.

Prosecutor Lisa Nugent said that this was the most disturbing case she ever handled.

Caizaguano, who had a Spanish interpreter in court, declined to give a statement before or after sentencing.
