  • Sheriff: Father kills man sexually abusing his daughter.

    (CNN) -- A Texas father caught a man sexually assaulting his 4-year-old daughter and punched him in the head repeatedly, killing him, authorities said.

    The father was casually acquainted with the alleged abuser, said Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon.

    Neither has been publicly identified.

    The girl was left inside the family's house during the social gathering, while other members of her family were tending to horses, the sheriff said.

    The alleged abuser was known for his horse-grooming abilities, Harmon said.

    The father returned to the house, caught the man in the act, and stopped him by striking him in the head several times, Harmon said.

    The man was pronounced dead on the scene, while the daughter was taken to a local hospital in Victoria, Texas, for examinations before being released.

    The incident took place Saturday.

    Harmon described the girl as "OK besides the obvious mental trauma."

    Asked whether they would press charges against the father, the sheriff responded, "You have a right to defend your daughter. He acted in defense of his third person. Once the investigation is completed we will submit it to the district attorney who then submits it to the grand jury, who will decide if they will indict him."

    Harmon described the dad as "very remorseful," adding that he didn't know the man was going to die.

    Authorities were withholding the deceased man's name while they notified next of kin. Officials did not know immediately if he has a prior criminal history.

    Awful for him and his daughter to have to go through that. I wouldn't have handled this any differently.

    The father would have been arrested and indicted already if this had happened in a liberal state. Glad the girl is ok.

      Good thing this happened in Texas. The father will prob get no billed. I dont believe the father did anything wrong. Props to the sheriff for recognizing defense of a third party.

        I believe it was already decided that charges would not be filed.



        Just as it should be.

          Nope, I would have no remorse. Not even a little bit if that was my daughter.

                  I would have beat him and his corpse until every bone in my hands and arms were broken.

                      Can't say I would have acted any differently. What a horrible thing for both of them to have to go through; dad, for having to kill a man with his bare hands, and his daughter for both the abuse and then watching her father kill a man.

                        There is a reason that the low life criminals even look down and target these people in the prison system. The devil has a special place reserved for this un-named man and his kind in hell, enjoy *** hole.

                            If I were that dad, I would've shot him in the head (both up top and down below).
