A 27-year-old Colorado Springs, Colo., man remained in jail Tuesday night on charges he molested a 9-year-old Portales girl, according to police.
Sammy Castillo Deleon was arrested Monday afternoon on seven charges, including the criminal sexual penetration of a minor, a first-degree felony, according to police.
Deleon is being held on a $87,000 cash-only bond, according to detention center staff.
The alleged incidents took place in Portales in September 2012, but Deleon was jailed in Roswell since the arrest warrant was issued. Once Deleon completed his sentence in Roswell, he was transferred to the RCDC, according to Portales police.
According to the affidavit for Deleon’s arrest:
• The incidents took place in a South Avenue G residence.
• The child disclosed in an interview that Deleon assaulted her.
• In another incident, the child claimed Deleon “humped” her but she was clothed.
• A medical exam conducted by Sexual Assault Nurses that September showed evidence of an assault.
