Julio Cesar Medrano, who also goes by the alias ‘Julio Rodriguez,’ a 23-year-old living in Las Vegas has been arrested for raping a 4-year-old girl. When police arrived to arrest him, they found that not only did he rape the small child, he taped it all on his iPhone.
The police were called when a woman was suspicious, and thought she saw Medrano playing a tiny clip of his assault of the child.
Medrano was taken into custody at the end of April, about a month after he committed the crime.
It is assumed that he is an illegal immigrant, but currently authorities are not yet sure, or did not yet release the information.
The Daily Mail reports:
A tattoo on the man’s hand in the recording helped investigators positively identify Medrano as the suspected perpetrator, Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
The Clark County Detention Center’s online database indicates that Medrano, who is lodged in the jail under his alias, Rodriguez, has been charged with seven criminal counts, including sexual assault against a child younger than 14; producing and possessing child pornography; child abuse or neglect; possession of a dangerous weapon and carrying a concealed knife without a permit.
Medrano is being held without bond pending a preliminary hearing, which is scheduled for June 1.
Online jail records show that an immigration detainer has been filed against Medrano, that there is no word on his status in the US, or his country of origin.
The Daily Mail on Thursday reached out to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police for a clarification and was awaiting a response.
