One of the worst things a parent can experience is finding out that their teenage daughter was raped. No matter how old they get, a parent still sees them as a vulnerable child and will do anything to ensure their safety. Well, it looks like one father turned into Samuel L. Jackson’s character from A Time To Kill after learning of a man, with a history of violence against women, raping his 13-year old daughter.
It seems Pittsburgh’s Action News 4 witnessed the child’s father arrive outside the home of suspect Dustin Moffat on Tuesday afternoon, jump on Moffat’s SUV and smash its windows with a hammer. The father’s identity was not made known by WTAE in order to protect the girl’s identity. The man reportedly screamed in anger about the violence that police say the 32-year-old Moffat inflicted on his daughter.
“Investigators believe there may be other victims and urge them to contact the Sex Assault/Family Crisis Unit at this time by calling 412-323-7141,” the police bureau said in a news release announcing Moffat’s arrest Tuesday. (WTAE)
Sickening enough, Pittsburgh police say Moffat sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl multiple times dating back to 2011, according to the complaint. And, making matters even more icky, Moffat apparently uploaded video of the assaults to Mocospace, a mobile gaming community. Luckily, someone at Mocospace alerted authorities to the posts.
Police said that they actually discovered the victim, however, while investigating similar complaints against Moffat. Neighbors who live next to Moffat and have 12-year-old twin girls were naturally appalled by the news.
“I’m appalled. He lives right there. No, I can’t have that,” said Micki Golden.
“We’re not friends with the guy. He seems like a normal Joe. You always hear that on the news. I had no sixth sense about it. Nothing like that,” said Steve Patton. (WTAE)
Court documents show Moffat having a history of violence against women. For example, two women filed protection from abuse orders against him — one in 2008 and another three weeks ago. The women claimed Moffat stalked them when they broke up, sent angry messages, and terrified them.
According to police, Moffat was arrested at his home Tuesday morning on charges including rape, involuntary deviate sexual intercourse, aggravated indecent assault, and sexual exploitation of children.
Let’s just say that Moffat is lucky that it was his crappy SUV that the father messed up, not Moffat’s face.
