A grandfather saved his five-year-old granddaughter from behind raped by his daughter’s fiance by punching him in the face after he discovered him molesting the child, police said.

The grandfather punched Aaron Cunagin, 22, after he discovered him wearing no underwear and exposing himself to the five-year-old girl at their home in Middletown, Pennsylvania, on Wednesday afternoon. 

The elderly relative, who has not been named, had earlier walked past his granddaughter’s bedroom and seen the girl sitting on Cunagin’s lap, which he thought ‘was weird’, according to court documents seen by Fox 11.  

He initially thought nothing of it but when the girl’s bedroom stayed ‘too quiet’ he returned to find Cunagin naked from the waist down while exposing himself to the girl. Cunagin had cornered the girl between the bed and crib in the corner of her room.

Outraged, the grandfather punched Cunagin, his daughter’s fiance, before shouting and calling the Middletown Borough Police Department to the family home in Pineford Apartments at 3.36pm.

Officers arrived at the scene and arrested Cunagin, with the five-year-old girl telling police that five other similar incidents had occurred before. Cunagin denies this. 

Cunagin at first reportedly told police that his pants had fallen down by accident when he stood up. But he later admitted that he had pulled them off when he felt ‘numb’ after the girl pulled her pants down, according to the affidavit seen by Fox 11.

‘It was just going through my head if I should really do it or not,’ Cunagin told authorities, according to the affidavit.

A woman in the apartment, who has not been named, was woken up as a result of the grandfather punching and screaming at Cunagin. 

She said Cunigan told her he had ‘blacked out’ during the incident in the girl’s bedroom and that he was sorry. 

Cunigan has been charged with the rape of a child, indecent assault, unlawful contact with a minor, corruption of minors and indecent exposure, police said in a statement. 

He was arraigned at Dauphin County and remanded to the Dauphin County Correctional Facility after being unable to post $150,000 bail.
