A Florida gamer accused of sexually assaulting two girls allegedly paused a game of Grand Theft Auto to rape one of the victims, all while leaving his gaming console's microphone on, allowing a witness to remotely hear the attack.
A witness told police he was chatting with Daniel Enrique Fabian, 18, while they played Grand Theft Auto online on PlayStation4 on June 28, according to an arrest report from the Pasco County Sheriff's Office obtained by Oxygen.com.
"The defendant told the witness the victim was over at his house and he was going to 'smash' her which the witness knew to mean to have sex," the report says. "The defendant stopped playing the game with the witness for approximately 15 minutes. During that time, the witness stated the defendant's microphone was still on and he heard the victim moan and groan. The witness then heard the victim say, 'No.'"
After that 15-minute interval, according to the report, Fabian resumed playing with the witness. The 15-year-old victim told police she told Fabian to stop four times and that he pushed her down and put his hand over her mouth.
Fabian was arrested Wednesday on charges of lewd and lascivious battery on a person between the ages of 12 and 15 for that incident. He’s being held without bail.
The arrest occurred after a five-month wait for the results of a DNA test, according to the Tampa Bay Times. The witness spoke to police in late October.
Fabian was arrested for another incident in June, in which allegedly assaulted another teen girl. The victim in that case also told police that Fabian sexually assaulted her despite several pleas for him to stop, according to another arrest report obtained by Oxygen.com. Fabian was arrested and charged with lewd and lascivious battery of a person between the ages of 12 and 15 in connection with that incident.
