A disabled girl was raped by a man, who claimed to be a good Samaritan trying to help her.

In his mugshot, the suspect sported injuries that he suffered during a beating when the caretaker found him molesting the girl.

The incident occurred around 11:45 p.m., on Monday, when the girl, her caretaker, and 60-year-old Spencer Keith Joyce, went to buy food from a restaurant.

The caretaker left the 7-year-old girl in the car with Joyce while he went to get the food. When he returned, the caretaker saw Joyce sexually abusing the girl.

The caretaker grabbed Joyce and started beating him.

Joyce told police the victim “asked for help in urinating and denied that the incident was sexual in nature.”

Pasco Sheriff’s deputies arrested Joyce of New Port Richey, on charges of capital sexual battery.

He was booked into the Land O’ Lakes Detention Center, where he is being held without bail.
