Police in New York are searching for a man suspected of raping a 10-year-old Brooklyn girl causing the victim extensive physical damage that required surgery.
Officials have identified Edwin P. Caizaguano, 24, as a suspect in the rape of the girl that occurred at an apartment building in Bushwick on October 19.
Caizaguano, who often goes by his middle name Patricio, is a Hispanic man who stands 5 foot 3 inches, is about 110 pounds, and has brown eyes and black hair, police say.
The child was hurt so badly during the rape that her injuries required numerous surgeries. But authorities report that she is now listed in stable condition.
Police are urging that anyone with information on Caizaguano’s whereabouts should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-577-TIPS.
