20-year-old Caleb Rosario of San Antonio, Texas, is accused of allegedly sexually assaulting an 11-year-old girl he met through Snapchat. Rosario was said to have snuck the girl out of her house before taking her to an apartment. Then it gets weird…um weirder.
While at the apartment, the victim said Rosario showed her a loaded gun, only to later point it to his head, saying he wanted to kill himself. She told the SAPD detective that Rosario asked her if she wanted to kill herself too, to which she said, ‘No,’ according to the affidavit.
During the assault, the girl’s phone kept ringing which freaked out Rosario. He then is said to have dropped the girl off at a McDonald’s. Police found the girl’s underwear at Rosario’s apartment.
No 11-year-old girl should be on Snapchat. Even by Snapchat’s own terms of service, a user is supposed to be at least 13-years-old, but they’re not actually going to check so you can’t rely on Snapchat to monitor your kids. Learn your kids’ technology and how to limit their access to dangerous apps. And always make sure that their bedrooms are device-free after bedtime.
