A 14-year old minor girl put secret cameras in her room to prove the physical abuse she has been enduring for years. She had resorted to this way as on one believed her, police said. According to an arrest report which is obtained by ABS News, the minor girl gave the video recording to the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office in Florida. This prompted the arrest of Damon Becnel, 47-year-old on January 2nd for the assault of a minor girl.
The Findings In The Video
In the two videos submitted by the girl, it can be seen that Becnel is assaulting the girl both physically and sexually. The assaults included, in which Becnel was grabbing the girl by her hair and throwing her head against the bed and head butting her. All this was according to the arrest report.
Animal Abuse Was Also Shown In The Video
Also, in the other video, it can be seen that Becnel pulled out a knife on a dog. He also stated yelling strong abuse language.
He said, “I will cut this f—— god—- dog’s f—— eyeballs out”. The girl was in the room pleading him to stop his actions, the report stated. According to the sheriff’s office, Damon Becnel faced charges on felony child abuse and tormenting an animal. To protect the identity of the daughter, the mother’s name was classified. The girl’s mother informed that no one believed her when she tried to report Becnel, according to ABC Pensacola. The girl had to resort to installing a secret camera and record it to provide proof.
However, according to WEAR, the mother does not have custody of the girl. She is currently living with Becnel’s best friend. As the state law states to protect the identities of child abuse victims, the sheriff’s office didn’t reveal whether the girl and Becnel are related or not. Later, Becnel came out on bail of $40,000 on January 3rd. He is due on February 4th before a judge. ABC News couldn’t reach him for comment at the moment.
