Police: Texas man raped 8-year-old girl while wife watched

Mark Munoz and Angela Munoz (Harris County)

Investigators say a Texas man sexually assaulted an 8-year-old girl while his wife watched.

Mark Munoz and Angela Munoz are in police custody, each charged with aggravated sexual assault of a child. Bail for both is set at $100,000.

According to court documents, the alleged victim, now a 21-year-old woman, said Mark Munoz raped her at a home in Harris County in 2001 while his wife, Angela Munoz, watched.

The girl allegedly told Angela Munoz after the assault that she was in pain. Investigators say Angela Munoz told the girl she would be fine, adding that Mark Munoz was sorry, didn't know what he was doing, and was drunk at the time.

The alleged victim says she was raped again by Mark Munoz when she was 14. She says it happened at an apartment in Harris County, and again, while Mark Munoz allegedly raped the teen, Angela Munoz watched. The accuser says Angela Munoz cleaned her up after she was assaulted.

Court papers show the alleged victim says she became pregnant when she was 14 and gave birth to a daughter as a result of the assault.

The alleged victim says she was repeatedly raped by Mark Munoz during her pregnancy.

Court documents say DNA tests indicate Mark Munoz is by a probability of 99.999% the father of the alleged victim's child.

Mark Munoz is scheduled to appear in court on Monday. Angela Munoz's arraignment is scheduled for early December.
