A mother called 911 saying she found her boyfriend naked in bed with her 7-year-old daughter, and after he ran off, the mother got in her car, chased him, and ended up hitting him, KCBD-TV reported.
The incident occurred in August 2021 in Texas, the station said. It came to light this week when the suspect was jailed in the Lubbock County Detention Center.
The boyfriend was identified in the police report as 29-year-old Delmer Orlando Ortiz Licona, but his name is listed as Orlando Delmer-Ortiz at the jail, KCBD reported, adding that the Lubbock man is facing charges of aggravated sexual assault of a child.
Police said a woman called 911 around 1 a.m. Aug. 8, saying she found her boyfriend in bed with her 7-year-old daughter, the station reported.
The woman was yelling, “What are you doing to her?” during the 911 call, KCBD said. She told the dispatcher she needed an officer at her home, the station reported, adding that the mother also said, “I just found my man, huh, whoever lives with me, naked in the bed with my daughter" and “please hurry, he’s running away, please hurry.”
When the dispatcher asked, “And he’s your boyfriend?” the woman responded, “He’s supposed to be, but you hurry up, or I’m going to kill him. I’m going to f*****g kill him. Please hurry, please hurry. I’m fixing to kill him, hurry please, please hurry, please f*****g hurry. He’s jumping the fence. He’s f*****g jumping the fence. Hurry," KCBD reported.
The woman identified her boyfriend to the dispatcher as "Delmer" who is "from Honduras," the station said.
The dispatcher heard the mother tell her daughter to get in the car, and the mother told the dispatcher her child was OK and that she "got home just [in] time," KCBD said.
The woman also told the dispatcher she was following the suspect, after which the dispatcher heard a loud sound as if something was hit and then a little girl screaming and crying, the station said.
The dispatcher heard someone say, “Please get an ambulance," KCBD reported.
When asked why, the woman said, “He’s in the alley, he just got in front of my car. He just got in front of my car, sir," the station said.
The dispatcher asked, “Did you just hit him?” and the woman replied, “Yes, he jumped right in front of my car, he jumped right in front of my car, sir," KCBD said.
She said Licona was passed out drunk but was OK and that she was OK, the station reported, adding that the call ended.
When 911 called back, the woman said Licona was moving and talking, and she was heard saying, “What were you thinking, Orlando?” and telling her daughter, “You shouldn’t have to go through that situation. You’re okay, you’re okay, he’s okay, too, the ambulance is coming," KCBD reported.
She also was heard saying, "Why? Answer me. What were you doing? What were you doing? What were you doing?” the station said, adding that the call soon ended again.
What happened next?
Investigators were assigned to the case in March, according to KCBD, and the mother agreed to bring in her child for a forensic interview, after which the child gave specific details about the assault.
Police in April attempted to interview Licona about the sexual abuse investigation, the station said, but police reports said he repeatedly refused to show up for scheduled meetings with the investigator, the station said.
With that, the case was given to the the criminal district attorney’s office, an arrest warrant was issued for Licona, and he was booked Tuesday into jail, where he was being held without bond for an immigration enforcement detainer.
