A Fort Myers man is facing a sex assault charge after deputies said he has been molesting a young girl for at least several months.
Armando Ramon Diego, 31, is facing a charge of sexual battery by a custodian on a victim younger than 12 years old. He was taken into custody Monday and remains at the Lee County Jail.
The staff at HealthPark Medical Center contacted the Lee County Sheriff's Office about the alleged abuse after the victim's mother brought her in to be examined on Sunday, according to a sheriff's office report.
The mother brought the victim to the hospital after the victim said she had pain in her abdominal area.
The victim then said Diego was molesting her when her mother went to work.
