An illegal immigrant has been arrested after he allegedly kidnapped and sexually assaulted a 13-year-old girl in North Carolina.
Authorities said the girl was walking near her home in the Schenley Square mobile home park on January 25 around 9.30pm when Seledonio Martinez-Gonzalez, 52, approached her.
Raleigh police said Martinez-Gonzalez, of El Salvador, threatened the teen and forced her to get in his car.
According to ABC 11, Martinez-Gonzalez then drove 30 miles to his mobile home near the Willow Spring community in Wake County.
One of the suspect’s neighbors told the station that another neighbor found the child on their front porch in the early hours of January 26.
‘She ran away from his mobile home, ended up at a neighbor’s and he followed her and he was telling her, “Get in the car. Get in the car,”‘ the neighbor claimed.
The unidentified neighbor also said the woman who found the teen called 911 and ‘that’s when they [police] came and took her’.
She told ABC the neighbor didn’t initially let the girl inside her home because she thought she might have been set up.
Martinez-Gonzalez is accused of kidnapping, sexually assaulting the girl and keeping her in sexual servitude. According to court documents, a deportation order has been issued.
