PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - Charlotte County detectives arrested a man who was babysitting a child on Monday, charging him with sexual battery on a five-year-old girl.
27-year-old Justo Ortiz Colon of Port Charlotte is being held in the Charlotte County Jail on no bond.
CCSO responded to Peace River Regional Medical Center Monday night in regards to sexual touching of a child. At the hospital the mother of the child said her daughter told her she was touched in her vaginal area by Colon, who is known to them.
The child said “Jutito touched me there.” (Jutito is the name the child refers to Justo Colon). The mother told Colon to get out of the house and then took her child to the hospital to be checked.
After a forensic interview and medical examination detectives learned that the child suffered a laceration and abrasions to her vaginal area consistent with being touched inappropriately.
