Juarez, Mexico (The Weekly Vice) - Pedro Artega Velazquez, a 53-year-old Mexican street clown, was jailed Wednesday after he allegedly raped his 14-year-old stepdaughter.

According to the Chihuahua State Attorney General's office, Velazquez was juggling on a street corner in Juarez, a violent border town across from El Paso, Texas, when he was brought in for questioning.
