A Marathon man wanted for a total of 12 counts of sexually battering a young girl was arrested today.
55 year old Angel Parrado was picked up at his residence at 240 Sombrero Road in Marathon this afternoon. He was booked into jail on a $3 million bond.
Parrado is accused of sexually molesting a young girl from the age of 9 until the age of 15,when she reported it to the Sheriff’s Office. The girl approached School Resource Sgt. Glenn Test at Marathon High School and reported the abuse to him in March. Sgt. Test then called the Sheriff’s Office Major Crimes Unit, who sent specially trained investigators to interview the victim. She told the investigators she estimates the abuse has happened “hundreds of times” over the years in question.
She said she told her mother about the abuse, but her mother told her Parrado would be returning to Cuba soon and she should just “stay away from him”.
Parrado was booked for 6 counts of sexual abuse of a child under 12 and six counts sexual abuse of a minor between 12 and 18 years of age.
