TROY, Mo. (KMOV) -- An illegal immigrant from Guatemala has been charged in the rape of a 14-year-old girl in Troy, Missouri.
The alleged victim says 24-year-old Juan Domingo Francisco-Esteban was involved in the attack last month inside her home. She told police that Francisco-Esteban and two other Hispanic men held her down by the shoulders while raping her on a couch.
According to documents, the victim identified Francisco-Esteban through a photo lineup. Police say he has also used the names Luis Guzman and Timothy Trevino as aliases.
The suspect lived in the Cherry Street Apartments, and neighbor Tanya Stewart said she often saw young girls around the residence.
"Very sick. That's very, very sick," Stewart said. "If I would have just known... I mean, this is why you take the time to get to know your neighbors and know what they're about and talk to them."
Police happened to catch Francisco-Esteban in an alleged forgery crime the day the victim reported the rape. Police say Immigration officials are already working to deport him, but want to try him as a criminal first.
He is currently being held without bond in the Lincoln County Jail.
