A truck driver in Texas, U.S. is guilty of assaulting and harassing a 12-year-old girl Dorika Uwimana.
Terry Wayne King II is guilty on charges of “assault causing bodily injury to a child and attempted aggravated kidnapping,” following the April 9, 2018 incident.
King II is sentenced to life after he was unable to prove himself innocent.
Uwimana, now 14, was walking down the street in the morning to get her school bus in Calmont Avenue and Laredo Drive in West Fort Worth where King II approached her and asked her for help.
As she agreed to help him, King II grabbed the girl and choked her neck. He threw her on the ground and started beating her but somehow in a tragic contest between the two she managed to run from there and approached the nearest school bus for help.
When the bus driver noticed the girl was bleeding severely and was unresponsive, he called the police for help.
The attack on her body caused internal injuries to her which lead to a severe heart transplant. In total, she had to undergo three operations as she sustained from the deficiency of oxygen during the assault.
The girl got her heart transplant in July 2018, in addition to this, the culprit was caught in Oklahoma City, where authorities established no clear motive in the case.
DNA samples found on her hands helped police to trace down King II. When the girl came in the court, she described the man as ” bad man.”
Uwimana and her family are living there from past four years.
“The faith that her family has given her, the support she’s had from her family is what kept us going on this case,” Hinz said. “She was an inspiration just to find a result in this case.”
Twizere Buhinga, the girl’s father, emigrated to the United States from the Democratic Republic of Congo less than two years ago. The Buhinga family consists of his wife, daughter, and five sons.
“A bad guy came to my daughter and attacked her.” “He touched my daughter and said he needed help. My daughter said she was going to school and what help do you need. He caught her by the arm and dragged her down to the ground and choked her,” recalled Buhinga.
