2 arrested in Immokalee child sex assault case

By FOX 4 Staff. CREATED Aug 4, 2014

IMMOKALEE, Fla. - Collier County detectives arrested a man and a woman in connection with the sex battery of a girl under the age of 12.

The case initially came to the attention of investigators in December 2013.  According to the arrest report 37-year-old Isai Gomez inserted his fingers into the girl's vagina on at least three occasion.

When detectives went looking for Gomez, the child's mother, 37-year-old Jesusa Ramirez-Toedoro said he Gomez was an illegal alien and that she did not know of his whereabouts.  Toedoro was told to contact law enforcement if she learned of Gomez's whereabouts.

Then on August 2, 2014 new calls came into the Children's Advocacy Center that Gomez was back in the home and sexually assaulting the same child.

Gomez was found and arrested for sexual battery on a child under 12 along with lewd and lascivious molestation of a child under 12.

Teodoro was arrested for child neglect with great bodily harm.  DCF removed all eight children from the home.
