People often prove to be strange with awkward wishes and prejudice. A Gilbert man was arrested for faking down syndrome and using the excuse to hire caregivers for changing diapers and getting bathed. According to the police, the 31-year-old Paul Anthony Menchaca was arrested on September 6 at his home. He lived near Val Vista Drive and Williams Field Road.
This awkward man hired a caregiver while pretending to be “Amy.” He asked the caregiver to bathe and change the clothes of her son while posing to be his own mother. This way, he used to hire caregivers.
The first victim was interrogated by the police. She told them that she assisted Menchaca with diaper changes and baths on 30 occasions. This happened during the summer. The baths and care sessions were taken at various places in the East Valley. Another victim performed similar duties for Menchaca. Total three caregivers were hired by the man and he misused their services. The three victims knew each other. All of them said that the man used to get aroused while getting bathes pretending to be suffering from down syndrome.
These caregivers were hired from the apps like care.com and Carelinx. One caregiver was interviewed by ABC News on the condition of anonymity.
He needed shower and grooming, he couldn’t use the bathroom himself, he couldn’t really be alone by himself. He acted like a child; his whole demeanor was childlike. He would act in tantrums, talk like a child, act like a child, said the caregiver in the interview.
The victims asked that why someone would seek an intimate care without giving a choice to the other person exercising that care. One of the victims who earlier became suspicious of Manchaca followed him home. She asked his parents about the suffering of their kid and they said that he was totally fine. The parents told the visiting caregiver that their son didn’t need any diapers. They negated his suffering of down syndrome.
One of the caregivers said that Manchacha used to ask her to come to his home and help him in getting a bath. Though, she didn’t do that as she felt disgusted merely with the notion of bathing Manchaca. All the three victims confronted the guy for lying.
