University City Police tell News 4 two sisters were sexually assaulted in the 8300 block of Delmar on Monday. Police say 34-year-old Juan Garcia attacked them around 7:40 that evening.
Investigators say the girls were outside playing moments before the assault. According to police, Garcia is not related to the girls and did not know them.
One girl was sodomized, the other was molested. One of the sisters was taken to the hospital for her injuries, she’s since been released.
The girl’s parents called for help moments after the attack. When police arrived, Garcia was still there. Captain Michael Ransom tells me University City Detectives recover enough evidence at the scene to charge him with a crime.
It is unclear if Garcia is an American citizen. Police say he does have a Missouri Drivers License.
Tonight, Garcia is in the St. Louis County Jail on a 150 thousand dollar cash only bond.
