Moises Acurio-Suarez Arrested for Raping 7-year-old
A Georgetown man is behind bars on multiple charges after being accused of raping a 7-year-old boy at least four different times.
Georgetown police were contacted Wednesday by staffers at Nanticoke Memorial Hospital who stated that there was a 7-year-old boy being examined for a possible sexual assault. Police say the exam revealed injuries to the victim that were consistent with sexual assault.
According to police, a further investigation revealed that 21-year-old Moises A. Acurio-Suarez was a neighbor of the boy. Police say that at times the boy's mother would drop him off at Acurio-Suarez's home to be baby-sat while the mother would go to work.
Police say that on Wednesday, the boy told his mother that he did not want to be dropped off at Acurio-Suarez's home anymore because Acurio-Suarez was having sex with him.
According to police, the Children's Advocacy Center also interviewed the child who disclosed that on at least four different occasions Acurio-Suarez made him have sexual intercourse.
Acurio-Suarez was taken into custody and according to investigators, admitted that the boy's allegations were true. Police say the only reason Acurio-Suarez gave for the sexual assault was that his family rejected him at a young age.
Acurio-Suarez was charged with four counts of first-degree rape, one count of second-degree, felony endangering the welfare of a child, and unlawful imprisonment. He was jailed in in lieu of $237,000 cash bond.
