However, the suspect, during interrogation, denied the allegation. 

He said, “I had my daughter with me in the house, and that night, I woke up to fix my heater that was bad because there was light. I didn’t touch her. I believe my girlfriend, who was with me in the house, committed the act. I only noticed in the morning that she had bloodstains on her leg,” he said.

The victim, on her part, explained that somebody touched her at night, but she didn’t see the person who touched her and couldn’t say anything. 

The Commissioner affirmed that the suspect would be charged in court after the conclusion of investigation.
