Marathon – A Marathon man is wanted for repeatedly sexually assaulting a young girl.
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 55 year old Angel Parrado, also known as Angel Parrado Torna, had been sexually molesting her since she was nine years old; she estimates the abuse has happened “hundreds of times” since then. The victim is currently 15 years old.
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”.
Major Crimes Detective Geni Hernandez obtained a warrant for Parrado’s arrest; he is wanted 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. His bond is set at $3 million.
Detective Hernandez says there is a possibility Parrado may attempt to flee to Cuba; she is asking anyone who knows where he is to call the Sheriff’s Office immediately. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can contact Crime Stoppers of the Florida Keys. If a tip leads to an arrest the caller would be eligible for a substantial cash reward.
