Police say an undocumented immigrant befriended a Lebanon family, snuck into their home and raped a 6-year-old girl.

Edwin Alfredo Velasquez-Curuchiche, 42, was charged with two counts of rape of a child from incidents stemming from Nov. 29.

Lebanon Police said the suspect, an undocumented immigrant, befriended a local family and used fraud to obtain a key to the victim’s home. Documents show Velasquez-Curuchiche approached the victim's mother asking to borrow a house key. He then made a copy without their knowledge.

On two occasions, Velasquez-Curuchiche snuck into the home after the family was sleeping and raped a 6-year-old girl who lived in the home. Court documents say the victim was fed medication and was asleep during the attacks.

Velasquez-Curuchiche was discovered on his second entry and the family notified police.

On Monday, Velasquez-Curuchiche pleaded guilty to all counts and was sentenced to 50 years in prison.

The Department of Homeland Security was involved in the investigation, and neighbors FOX 17 News spoke to in Wilson County say they are thankful their children did not know Velasquez-Curuchiche.
