A 4-year-old girl was abducted from her Pennsylvania home in the middle of the night and sexually told investigators “a monster took me,” said the reports.

Humberto Guzman-Garcia is charged with the snatching of the little girl, around 3:30 a.m., Sunday, in Avondale, WPVI-TV reported.

“The little girl, later, as we talked to her, told us that a monster came and took her out of the house,” Chester County District Attorney Thomas Hogan said, according to KYW-TV.

Hogan said Guzman-Garcia and the girl were strangers.

“This crime is every parent’s worst nightmare,” Hogan said Thursday in the announcement of the Guzman-Garcia’s arrest, according to Fox 43 Harrisburg. “A monster comes out of the night, kidnaps your child, and sexual violence to her. This is the proof that evil exists in the world.”

The police said Guzman-Garcia picked up the girl when they heard him knocking on the door, to the station.

“Because she was so small, she could only unlock from the bottom. She opened the door, the actor had a brief conversation with her through the crack in the door, and at that moment he reached in, opened the latch and took the child of the house,” Pennsylvania State Police Trooper Stefano Gallina said, according to KYW.

The mother of the girl and the father went looking for her when they discovered her missing.

As he searched the yard, the father of the girl saw Guzman-Garcia holding her down, according to Fox 43. He told police Guzman’-Garcia’s pants down and his daughter naked on the ground.

Guzman-Garcia then fled. Troopers found him hiding in a disabled car. He was indicted for kidnapping, aggravated indecent assault, attempted rape, and related charges.

KYW reported that Guzman-Garcia from Mexico and a legal US resident.
