By J. Chambless
The Chester County District Attorney's
Office announced on June 14 the arrest of Humberto Guzman-Garcia, 35, for
the sexual assault of a 4-year-old Avondale girl.
District Attorney Tom Hogan said, “This crime is every parent's nightmare. … This is proof that evil exists in this world.”
Guzman-Garcia, 35, last lived at 326 Lake Road in Avondale. The press release from the District Attorney says at about 3:30 a.m. on June 10, the girl's parents realized their daughter was missing from their home. The victim's father went outside, where he saw Guzman-Garcia by a shed, holding the girl down. His pants were unbuckled, and he fled.
The girl told her father that she heard a knock on her bedroom door, and opened it. Guzman-Garcia then took her outside and sexually assaulted her.
Police found the suspect hiding in a nearby disabled car. The victim's father identified him.
Guzman-Garcia is a stranger to the family. He has been charged with kidnapping, aggravated indecent assault, attempted rape, and related charges. He was arrested, failed to post bail, and was taken to Chester County Prison.
“Given the nature of the attack, we are concerned that there could have been prior victims,” Hogan said. “Anybody with information about Humberto Guzman-Garcia should call the police to assist in the investigation.”
Anyone with additional information is asked to call Trooper Stefano Gallina at 610-268-2022.
