A father in California called police after seeing a man standing outside of his daughter’s bedroom window.

Santa Rosa police arrested Francisco Aparicio Cortes for peeping into the bedroom of the 11-year-old girl.

The father called the police at 2:30 a.m. after seeing the man in his backyard with a flashlight, looking into his home.

At the time of his arrest, Cortes gave police two different birthdays, making him either 24 or 28 years old, according to the police.

The next day, the father of the victim went to the investigators with more information, indicating that his daughter was sexually assaulted by the suspect.

The father showed detectives a family member’s phone, which the girl used to communicate with Cortes via Snapchat.

The father found that the girl and Cortes exchange thousands of messages, and some of them were of a sexual nature, according to police.

Cortes was re-arrested on suspicion of aggravated sexual assault of a minor. He was booked into Sonoma County Jail and bail was set at $1 million.
