Syracuse (UTAH) Police Searching for Man Accused of Raping 11-Year-Old Girl
April 9th, 2007 @ 4:59pm

KSL.COM- Syracuse police say they have enough evidence to charge Benito Martinez with first-degree rape, but they have to find him. The suspect has been missing since the incident happened early Saturday morning.

Police say he was renting a room in a house where other families were living, including the 11-year-old victim. Police say the 11-year-old girl and the suspect did not know each other, aside from the fact they lived under the same roof. Twenty-two-year-old Benito Martinez was renting a room in the house and carpooled to various construction jobs with others also renting there.

Police were called to the home early Saturday morning around 1:45. "He apparently went into the 11-year-old's room and sexually assaulted her. I don't know at which point it was interrupted, but it was interrupted by someone who mentioned they would call the cops, and he left the house," says Lt. Tracy Jensen of the Syracuse Police Department. Martinez has not returned since.

Anyone that would do this to a little girl is very very dangerous. Please, if you know the whereabouts of this animal, please call the Syracuse Police immediately at 801-825-4400 or contact Police Chief Brian Wallace @ bwallace@syracuseut.com
