Mexico City, Feb 21 (IANS) A man was arrested in western Mexico for sexually abusing his two teenage daughters for last eight years, EFE reported Saturday.
The Attorney General’s Office in Michoacan province said in a communique that Joel Gonzalez, 38, was arrested after one of his daughters became pregnant and complained to the police.
“The suspected rapist committed his despicable acts while the girls’ mother was away, since she works all day,” the statement added.

Recently their mother took one of them to a doctor, who found that the girl was pregnant.
The teenager told the whole story to her mother, who immediately went to the authorities to report the aggressor, who was arrested Thursday.
