Two girls came forward in connection with a Louisiana man wanted for allegedly raping a 10-year-old and said they, too, were victims.
As CrimeOnline previously reported, brothers Raul and Wilmer Paz-Perez, both 35, were arrested and booked last month into the Jefferson Parish Correctional Center in Gretna on charges of first-degree rape charges. Their brother, 31-year-old Elder Paz-Perez, is on the run.
Authorities said that all three brothers, who know the victim’s family, were alone in a Kenner home on September 9 when they offered the victim, 10, money and made sexual advances toward her. According to the Kenner Police Department, the suspects lived in the home with the victim.
The girl, apparently scared of the men’s advances, ran to the bathroom and locked herself inside. The brothers allegedly broke into the bathroom and raped her, police said.
Nola.com reports that two new victims both say they were sexually assaulted by Elder Paz-Perez. According to Lt. Michael Cunningham, a spokesperson for the Kenner Police Department, the new victims are ages 8 and 15.
The 8-year-old said Elder Paz-Perez sexually molested her while someone was babysitting her at a Kenner home. The 15-year-old, who said she’s a relative of the first victim, claimed Elder Pax-Perez touched her inappropriately when she was 13.
Anyone with information on Elder Paz- Perez’s whereabouts should call the Kenner Police at (504) 712-2222 or Crimestoppers at (504) 822-1111, or the U.S. Marshals Service (877) 926-8332.
