A Dallas police officer has been arrested for allegedly abusing and repeatedly raping a 14-year-old sex-trafficking victim during his lunch breaks.

Officer Tyrone Williams Jr., 49, has been booked into the Dallas County jail on a second charge of sexual assault of a child on Tuesday, May 17. The Dallas Police Department initiated an investigation into officer Williams last year after the daughter of a family friend told authorities that he forced himself on her while she was sleeping at his house, the Dallas Morning News reported.

After spending a brief period of time in a juvenile detention center, the minor girl reportedly began living with Williams, a friend of her mother. The teen stated that Williams assaulted her on her first night in his home. She also claimed that Williams would repeatedly rape her during his lunch breaks and added that she feared Williams would kill her if she came forward.

Williams reportedly turned himself in to the authorities on June 14, 2021 and was placed on administrative leave by the department.

The victim reportedly stayed at Williams' south Oak Cliff home after having an argument with her father. The officer was reportedly friends with the girl’s parents.

Later that night, however, while the girl was sleeping in Williams’ daughter’s bedroom, the cop allegedly began to stroke her thighs and rubbed up against her. Williams' daughter was not at home at the time of the assault. That first night, the girl managed to push him off her until she could break free and then locked herself in a bathroom, the Daily Beast reported.

According to the police department, Williams is on administrative leave while an internal investigation is being conducted. He has been with the department since 2009 and was assigned to the South Central patrol division.

In a similar but unrelated incident, an Indian father allegedly mercilessly raped his own 22-year-old daughter on June 7, 2021, after taking her to a hotel on the pretext of a supposed scheduled job interview in Haryana, India, Latin Times reported.

After the father took the girl to the room, the father reportedly pinned down his daughter and tied her hands. He proceeded to tape her mouth shut before going forward with the rape while making lewd videos of the brutal act using his phone.

The abusive patriarch allegedly warned her that he would circulate the video in their village if she told anyone about the ordeal.

A few days later, the daughter managed to find time alone with her mother, after going to a market to buy produce, and proceeded to narrate the horrifying assault.

The man has been booked under Section 376 (rape) of the Indian Penal Code (IPC) and several sections of the IT (Information Technology) Act of 2000.

A man was reportedly arrested on suspicion of assaulting his wife, after she reportedly asked for a divorce in Ebetsu, Hokkaido, Japan on Saturday, Sept. 24. This is a representational image. Pixabay.
