An illegal immigrant in New Jersey is accused of raping a 6-year-old girl then jumping out of a second-floor window after her father walked in during the assault, police said.

Her father realized something was amiss when he noticed an upstairs light was turned off, according to the Star Ledger.
When the father entered the bedroom, he found Mendoza on the young girl’s bed, police said. Mendoza leapt from the second-story window and ran off, police said. The father called police.
Two adults and two children were in the home at the time of the assault, according to the Trentonian.
