A man who is accused of touching himself outside of a 10-year-old girl’s window in Harris County, Texas, was later shot by the victim's father when he tracked the alleged predator down.
Now, the suspect deviant Jorge Ramos, 44, is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and indecency with a child by exposure.
The girl’s parents reported their daughter alerted them to a man tapping on her window and touching himself on June 28, according to court documents obtained by FOX 26.
The girl told police she heard a tapping, felt she was being watched and then saw Ramos outside her window. The parents, armed with handguns, confronted the man outside and told him to wait for police, according to FOX 26.
However, Ramos allegedly walked away and the parents followed, according to court documents.
The couple followed Ramos to a gas station where the victim's mom held the man as the husband went to the window to ask the clerk to call 911, cops say.
Ramos then allegedly took the handgun from the wife and pointed it at her. Ramos tried twice to fire the gun at her, but the safety was on, FOX 26 reported.
The husband then shot the man, according to police.
Ramos was shot three times and was taken to the hospital. While charges have been filed against Ramos, he is not yet in police custody.
