Upon arriving at the house, the alleged rapist began to beat the man, starting a dispute between the two. Meanwhile, the two children and the mother went down to the street. The two boys began to cry. Several people saw the scene and called the police.

Mother's Excuses

As the officers went up to the home where the alleged sex offender was, the mother told the police that on several occasions her children had told her that they were being assaulted by their partner.
