Alleged raped victim, 3, moved to Lady Cilento

A THREE-year-old girl who was left in a critical condition after she was allegedly tortured and raped by her mother's partner in Capalaba has been moved to Lady Cilento Hospital.

The girl was taken to Redlands Hospital about 8pm on Thursday suffering serious injuries to her head, arm and legs.

A spokesman for Lady Cilento Hospital confirmed the child had been transferred to the children's hospital and remains in a serious but stable condition.

Police allege the torture and sexual assault took place between 7.30am and 5.30pm Thursday when the child's mother was at work.

A neighbour is understood to have heard screaming from the house during the incident.

Other neighbours in the quiet street were shocked and said there was an incident about two months ago that spilt on to the street.

"She is a cute little muffin that didn't deserve this," a neighbour said.

"The mother obviously cares for the little girl. She looked well cared for, well looked after, beautiful manners. A darling little girl."
