A Bonita Springs man has been jailed on no bond after claims he molested and raped a girl for at least 5 years.
Carlos Garcia Soto, 25, was arrested Tuesday after a three-week search.
The victim, now 14, said Soto started molesting her when she was 10, and began raping her a year later.
The victim’s mother told investigators she didn’t learn about the alleged assaults until March, because her daughter had been afraid to tell her. When the victim’s mother confronted Soto, he fled the scene.
Deputies arrested him Tuesday at a Bonita Springs apartment, where they found him hiding in the attic.
Soto fled after the victim’s mother confronted him about the allegations, which her daughter had withheld until March because she was afraid to tell her.
