Posted: Friday, October 10, 2014
A Bensalem man has been charged with sexually assaulting a girl when he was 11 and she was 6.
Raymen Kris Arango, now 20, was arraigned before District Judge Joseph Falcone on a felony sexual assault charge Friday and released on $100,000 unsecured bail.
Bensalem Detective David Nieves Jr., who inherited the follow-up investigation started by a now-retired detective, conducted a forensic interview at the Bucks County Child Advocacy Center in February with the accuser, now 15, according to a probable cause affidavit.
Court records state Nieves made attempts to locate Arango while the investigation remained idle.
On Aug. 26, while the detective was driving on Street Road, he saw Arango walking west on the highway. He initiated a pedestrian stop and confirmed his identity, the affidavit said. Arango agreed to accompany Nieves to police headquarters where he admitted engaging in sex acts with the girl, police said.
