(Newser) – A furious Texas father pulled a man who was molesting his 5-year-old daughter off of the child and beat him to death, he told police. The dad spotted the man on top of the girl behind a barn during an event where several people were grooming and caring for horses about 120 miles west of Houston, reports the Houston Chronicle. The father raced to the scene behind the barn when he suddenly heard his daughter screaming.

He told police he witnessed the 47-year-old man sexually assaulting his daughter, pulled him off, and hit him several times in the head. The man died at the scene, and the girl was taken to a hospital for treatment and evaluation. The father has not been arrested. Officials said a grand jury will determine what, if any, charges will be filed against him.
