According to the girl's father, they were moved out of intensive care and in stable condition Monday afternoon.
“When she talks, she starts crying,” said Martin Perez, the victim's father. “I tell her, ‘We don't have to talk about nothing, just focus on your health and be calm.’”
It was unknown how the 14-year-old suspect was able to get into the house or why he attacked the siblings, but police noted that he has a criminal history
Perez said his daughter knew her attacker.
“My daughter asked, ‘Why are you doing this?’ And he said, ‘Out of revenge’ or something.”
Investigators said the suspect is an acquaintance of the girl's older brother, who is currently in juvenile hall.
The suspect’s mother said Monday evening that her son was being framed.
She did want to be identified, but said that her son got into trouble drinking that night with other teens.
“They took him over there and they pushed him on the floor and once they were in the house they pushed him on the floor. Then he heard the girl crying and crying,” said the suspect’s mother. “Then he said they grabbed me mom and took off all my clothes and they took me to the bed.”
The Vacaville Unified School District confirmed that the suspect is a freshman at Will C. Wood High School. Fellow students were stunned upon hearing the news Monday and said he kept to himself.
“Very quiet and not social,” said Will C. Wood High student Amanda Clary.
Police were still investigating the incident Monday and looking into why the children were left home alone overnight by their mother, who didn’t return home until 9 a.m., hours after SWAT removed the suspect from the home.
Perez, who shares custody of the daughter, said he has questions himself.
“Why was my daughter alone that late? She is 13 years old,” said Perez.
