A mother and father in Brazil discovered heart-breaking sketches drawn by their five-year-old girl showing how she was allegedly sexually abused by a priest.
Father Joao da Silva, 54, is said to have admitted the attack after the child’s furious father confronted him in the city of Montes Claros, in Minas Gerais in Brazil.
The girl’s parents found the sketches after their daughter suddenly refused to attend any more of da Silva’s English classes, local media reported.
She was so distraught that they took her to a child psychologist who suspected sexual abuse and urged her parents to search her room for any signs.
Hidden among her books they found six heartbreaking drawings by their daughter detailing the sexual abuse.
One drawing shows a man apparently looming over a child who has a look of abject terror on her face.
Another harrowing image apparently shows a girl lying on a bed with a man forcing himself between her legs.
Underneath him the picture appears to show the girl screaming in either fear or agony.

When the father confronted the priest in a phone call, he told police, the cleric confessed to him, according to local media.
