(CNN) -- A Texas father caught a man sexually assaulting his 4-year-old daughter and punched him in the head repeatedly, killing him, authorities said.

The father was casually acquainted with the alleged abuser, said Lavaca County Sheriff Micah Harmon.

Neither has been publicly identified.

The girl was left inside the family's house during the social gathering, while other members of her family were tending to horses, the sheriff said.

The alleged abuser was known for his horse-grooming abilities, Harmon said.

The father returned to the house, caught the man in the act, and stopped him by striking him in the head several times, Harmon said.

The man was pronounced dead on the scene, while the daughter was taken to a local hospital in Victoria, Texas, for examinations before being released.

The incident took place Saturday.

Harmon described the girl as "OK besides the obvious mental trauma."

Asked whether they would press charges against the father, the sheriff responded, "You have a right to defend your daughter. He acted in defense of his third person. Once the investigation is completed we will submit it to the district attorney who then submits it to the grand jury, who will decide if they will indict him."

Harmon described the dad as "very remorseful," adding that he didn't know the man was going to die.

I couldn't see a grand jury trying to indict this one.... what do you think?
Authorities were withholding the deceased man's name while they notified next of kin. Officials did not know immediately if he has a prior criminal history.

You won't be able to find 12 people in the whole State of Texas who would convict him, let alone get them all in the same room at the same time.

Oh yeah, ... I almost forgot ...
BAN FISTS!!

Its rediculous that its even a question whether the father would be charged. If I was in his situation, I would have no remorse stomping out the P.O.S. life.

I think he's got no problem in Texas. NY would probably be a different situation. I have two daughters, 12 and 10. When the boys knock on my door, their going to see me wearing my LIF hat and shirt........

I would only feel bad that I had to hurt someone, as I desire to hurt nobody. However, anyone touched my daughter like that and they basically are not leaving you a choice. There are consequences for any actions, and assaulting someones child, you do so knowing that you stand the chance of being killed should you be caught.

If it was my 4yr old daughter... I can't say that this outcome
would have not been the same for me - a safe daughter and
one dead perp.

Except you live in New York so you would be in jail and being sued for millions.

If the abuser was a priest, the dad would have said a Hail Mary, and the priest might have transferred a couple of hundred miles away . If the abuser was a winning football coach, students would have had a rally to support him. Especially in TX. If the abuser was a UFT teacher, he would have gotten a no work rubber room job til he retired. On a hefty pension.

Much of what you said here is true and all the more sad because of it.

I am a Penn State Alumni and the only things that sickened me more than the abuse was the coverup and the students caring more about the football team then justice and protecting children from child abusers. They need to get their priorities straight.

I hope the little girl gets through this and the Dad has no problems.
