‘My son is a victim of a paedophile’: A father says his son has been raped by a paedophile
A father has described his teenage son as a victim who was sexually assaulted by a ‘child sex offender’ in his care.
The man, who cannot be named for legal reasons, said his 14-year-old son was abused in his own home by an adult who is now a convicted sex offender.
He told The Sun newspaper that his son was taken from his parents home in October last year and returned to his parents.
The boy had suffered a serious head injury and required extensive care, he said.
His father said he did not know whether the boy was at the address he was at when the attack took place.
He said he was concerned his son would have been abused if he had not been able to provide for him.
The father said the attack occurred when the boy had been home alone, and he had gone to go to work at the time.
He described the incident as ‘extremely upsetting’.
Mr Hargreaves said he had contacted police the day after the attack and had spoken to the boy’s mother.
The victim told police he had been sexually assaulted on his mother’s sofa by an unidentified adult at the boy ‘trying to get close to him’.
Mr D’Antoni said the incident had ‘left a huge hole’ in the family.
He had tried to contact police on several occasions, but they were unable to reach the boy.’
I had to contact them myself to get in touch with my son,’ he said of the man.’
They told me that they could not reach him, and that he was in a police station and was going to be taken into custody.’
He was then placed in a care home, where he was placed with a different person who was convicted of sexual offences against children and he was being monitored.’
At the time, I was in contact with the care worker who is responsible for my son, and she had also been interviewed by the police.’
Mr D ‘Antoni described the man as being between 25 and 40 years old.
He did not have any previous convictions, and said he is no longer working as a cleaner.’
It is shocking that someone who has no previous convictions should be in this position, but that is the reality,’ he added.
The police are still investigating and are appealing for information about the man’s whereabouts.
