MATTAWA, Wash. – The Grant County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a child rape case.  A Mattawa man is in jail accused of sexually assaulting one of his children.

The man is not being identified to protect the victims.

A woman called authorities on November 10 saying her child had been raped.  Deputies learned the woman and her husband had been involved in a domestic violence incident and the woman fled to a relative’s nearby home.  She told deputies she returned a short time later to find evidence her daughter had been sexually assaulted.

When deputies arrived on the scene, the woman’s husband refused to cooperate.  Deputies were forced to use a Tazer twice to subdue him.  The man was booked into the Grant County Jail on suspicion of First Degree Rape of a Child.

The girl, who is under the age of ten, was rushed by ambulance to a Yakima hospital where she underwent surgery for her injuries.  Another child living in the home, also under the age of ten, was also taken to the hospital with unknown injuries.
