A Braselton man arrested for rape told his victim to write a goodbye letter to her two-year-old daughter while threatening to kill the young girl and the victim, according to police.
The victim told Braselton police that Christopher Edward Oliva, 32, came to her Braselton residence, kicked her, beat her and threatened her with a firearm. The victim had bruises on her face and two black eyes, according to an incident report.
At one point during the assault, the victim said Oliva told her she was going to die. He let her write a goodbye note to her two-year-old daughter, who was sleeping in a nearby bedroom, according to police. Oliva also told the victim he would kill the girl first and she could watch and even asked where she wanted her to be shot.
The incident came to light after a public safety official at Northeast Georgia Medical Center told police that a woman reported that her ex-boyfriend had raped her that evening. A sexual assault exam was performed at the hospital and Braselton police collected evidence at the woman’s house.
Oliva was charged with cruelty to children in the third degree, possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, rape, aggravated assault, battery, pointing or aiming a gun at another and possession of a firearm while committing a crime.
Oliva was taken to the Jackson County Jail. He asked for his lawyer and refused to answer questions about the incident, according to Braselton police.
The Braselton Police Department is still investigating the incident.
