NEW PORT RICHEY, Florida — A twisted teen who left his headset microphone on following an online game of Grand Theft Auto was busted for sexually assaulting a young girl after his opponent overheard the attack and called police.
Daniel Enrique Fabian, 18, allegedly told the teen he was playing with that he intended to have sex with the 15-year-old girl who later came to his house, the Pasco County sheriff’s office said.
When Fabian stopped playing the game for about 15 minutes, he left his headset microphone on, and the witness told cops he heard the girl say “no.”
The girl told police that Fabian covered her mouth, pushed her down and sexually battered her, the Tampa Bay Times reported. She told cops she told him to stop four times. She underwent a rape examination and the report said a “medical assessment supports the allegation of sexual abuse,” according to the arrest report.
The incident occurred in June, but investigators had to wait for the results of a DNA test to come back to definitively link him to the assault. He was charged on Nov. 21 with lewd and lascivious battery on a person between the ages of 12 and 15.
Earlier in June, Fabian had been arrested on charges of sexually battering another girl and was out on bail when the second alleged assault occurred.
In the earlier incident, the girl told deputies that Fabian — whom she had just met a few days before — assaulted her despite her pleading for him to stop. In that incident, he was also charged with lewd and lascivious battery of a person between the ages of 12 and 15.
He is currently being held without bail.
