Eugenio Perez, 40, was arrested early this morning and charged with sexual battery on a victim between the ages of 12 and 18 after luring a girl to his home to smoke marijuana.
According to the arrest report, the girl, whose age was not provided, said Perez approached her on his bicycle while she was walking in the area of SW Archer Road and SW 75th Street at about 10 p.m. on April 15. She said Perez asked if she wanted to smoke marijuana with him, and she agreed to do so. She then followed him back to his house. She said that Perez had a white rock-like substance and asked her if she wanted to smoke crack. She said she declined the crack but agreed to smoke marijuana out of a “bowl” that was placed on the window sill in Perez’s bedroom.
The victim said she began to feel “weird” after smoking the marijuana and that she attempted to get out of the bed, but he grabbed her by the hair and yanked her back on the bed. She said he then climbed on top of her and that she began to feel numb and couldn’t move. She said that Perez then raped her.
The girl was able to positively identify the house where the incident took place, and she positively identified Perez after he was stopped yesterday while riding a bicycle.
Post Miranda, Perez reportedly said he met the girl on the bicycle trail and let her use his phone, then invited her back to his house. He reportedly said they then smoked marijuana, and she told him she felt like the marijuana was “laced.” He said she told him she was 18 and that she wanted to have sex with him; he then purchased crack and smoked it with the girl twice. Perez reportedly said they had sex “all night” and that the girl was “moving slow” when they first started having sex, but he thought that was because she was tired. He also reportedly said she “passed out” at one point, but when she woke up, they continued having sex. He also reportedly said that they had “rough consensual sex.”
Perez is being held on $100,000 bail.
