The victim was 14-years-old at the time of the latest incident, Fong said.

The victim reported the incidents to her father who then contacted Thomas Township police.

After police were contacted, the victim was interviewed by a forensic interviewer and she reported the suspects sexually assaulted her on several incidents, Fong said.

The abuse reportedly went on for two years.

"You open your moth in disbelief. You just can't believe it," said Frances Hayes, Saginaw resident. "It's despicable if they actually did it."

The Roys are charged with eight felonies including criminal sexual conduct and child abuse. They are also accused of forcing the girl to strip, beating her with a belt, punching her and choking her.

Kyle Roy told police the victim was hit with a belt, punched and choked as a form of discipline, Fong said.

"I don't believe people should be that evil to people," said Dennis Spencer, Thomas Township resident.

TV5 will continue to follow this story.
