MASSILLON, OH (The New York Post) – An Ohio man is accused of having sex with an 11-year-old girl — who is now pregnant, according to local reports.
Juan Leon-Gomez, 26, was arrested early Wednesday when the child was discovered hidden at his Massillon home, about 60 miles south of Cleveland, the Canton Repository reported.
The suspect’s roommate allowed police to search their home after the girl’s mother filed a missing person report, police said. When cops entered the residence, the 11-year-old was found in an upstairs bedroom closet.
Leon-Gomez was already the subject of an ongoing sexual assault investigation involving the girl, according to the Repository.
He was charged with rape, obstructing official business and contributing to the unruliness or delinquency of a child.
