A FIREFIGHTER and his wife allegedly raped a seven-year-old girl to teach her how to have a baby and stitched up her wounds after the attack, according to court documents.
Areglio Pupo, 32, and Morgan Keene, 27, from Apopka, Florida, are facing charges that include sexual battery of a child under the age of 12.
The abuse allegedly started when Pupo allegedly raped the child in a bedroom while Keene was present.
The allegedly gruesome attack caused the child to start bleeding but after Keene helped clean her up, she reportedly told the girl to take a shower and go to sleep.
“The victim stated [Keene] was present when this incident occurred and assisted in cleaning up the blood before ultimately telling the victim to go shower and go to bed,” the report said.
Text messages obtained by police show that the following day, Keene texted a friend, who is an obstetrics nurse, and led her to believe she was inquiring about her own “vaginal tear”.
The friend told Keene to go to the doctor, however, Keene reportedly told her that the victims injuries were instead stitched up.
6When the friend asked Keene who stitched up the victim and if lidocaine, an anesthetic, was used, Keene reportedly said Pupo did the stitching, according to police docs.
And as for the lidocaine, Keene allegedly responded, “Nope lololol”.
According to court documents obtained by Spectrum News13, police were called to the Apopka home on Nov. 11, for a report of a disturbance.
Once on the scene, officers spoke to two witnesses to whom the victim disclosed details of the alleged abuse.
One of the witnesses showed the officers video of the victim describing the suspects’ alleged actions, the outlet reported.
A witness said that the seven-year-old stated that she was being forced to do ‘sexual acts that she did not wish to perform,” according to an arrest affidavit.
The attacks reportedly happened between May 1 and November 12.
“The victim mentioned that they were trying to teach her how to have a baby,” a police report read.
When questioned by police, Keene said that Pupo was abusive to her and that she had been trying to get out of the relationship.
She claimed that he previously hit her with an ice bag, which caused partial vision loss, according to cops.
The 27-year-old, who said she was pregnant, also told police that Pupo kicked her in the ribs when he found out about the pregnancy and punched her in the stomach with one of his crutches.
Keene also claimed that she had no idea of the allegations, and said she’d never witnessed any physical or sexual abuse of the child.
The Kissimmee Fire Department has placed Pupo on administrative leave without pay.
The maximum penalty for someone convicted of capital sexual battery of a child under 12 is life in prison.
Keene is facing charges of capital sexual battery of a child under 12 and neglect of a child with great bodily harm, while Pupo is also facing charges of capital sexual battery of a child and aggravated child abuse.
Both suspects remain behind bars in Orange County Jail without bail.
Pupo is a Kissimmee firefighter, while Keene is a real-estate broker.
