Arizona man charged with sexual abuse after allegedly faking Down syndrome: police

An Arizona man has been hit with multiple counts of sexual abuse charges along with other charges of fraudulence. USA Today reports that he allegedly pretended to have Down syndrome and then hired female caretakers to give him a bath and change his diapers.

Paul Menchaca, 31, has been accused by three women and police believe he has more victims. Menchaca reportedly posed as his mother through the online service where he hired the women.

When the women became suspicious, one visited Menchacas parents who told her he did not have Down syndrome and could fully take care of himself.

Police think the scheme happened between January and September of 2018.

He has a preliminary hearing on September 17th according to court records.
