A father was shocked to find a man raping his young daughter while she was asleep in her bed, according to police in New Jersey.

Trenton police said that they have arrested 32-year-old Edgar Mendoza after being accused of sexually assaulting the 6-year-old girl.

Mendoza has been charged with burglary, endangering the welfare of a child, sexual assault, and aggravated sexual assault.

He was booked into jail, where he is being held without bail.

ICE has placed an immigration detainer on Mendoza, who illegally came to the United States from Guatemala.

According to the police investigation, the incident unfolded at around 1:30 a.m., on Tuesday.

The father of the victim woke up and noticed that the light of his daughter’s bedroom was switched off.

This raised alarm bells and the father went to check on his 6-year-old daughter.

When the father entered his daughter’s bedroom, he noticed Mendoza on the bed with his child.

When Mendoza noticed the father, he jumped out of the window and fled the scene.

The girl was taken to a hospital, where it was confirmed that she was sexually assaulted.
