FAIRFAX COUNTY, VA – On July 20, police arrested Rigoberto Garcia-Nolasco, 48, after one victim came forward in May, and reported the sexual abuse that took place in 2001. At the time of the alleged assaults, the suspect was living in the 13300 block of Schwenger Place in Herndon, and gave free piano lessons to several children in the area.
During the investigation, detectives found two more victims.
All of the sexual abuse reportedly took place between 1999 and 2001.
In the early 2000s, he moved to Maryland, where he may have victimized more children.
Garcia-Nolasco has been charged with indecent liberties with a minor, two counts of aggravated sexual assault and three counts of animate object sexual penetration. He is currently being held at the Fairfax County Adult Detention Center without bond.
The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information on this case or has been victimized by Garcia-Nolasco, is urged to contact Major Crimes Bureau at 703-246-7800, and select option 3.
*Garcia-Nolasco came to this country from El Salvador and was living in Winchester, Virginia at the time of his arrest. Both Northern Virginia and Southern Maryland have a large Salvadoran population, most of whom are in the country illegally.
His Facebook page reports that he has been married since 2010 and displays photos of himself playing piano inside a church, along with several posts quoting Bible verses.
Disturbingly, the page also shows the Salvadoran national posing for photos with several small children.
