CHARLOTTE AMALIE – A 52-year-old St. Thomas man was arrested for performing oral sex on a 13-year-old boy while the territory was under a tropical storm warning yesterday, according to the Virgin Islands Police Department.

Andres Carmona Ortiz of Estate Bovoni was arrested and charged second-degree rape in connection with the statutory rape of the boy, the VIPD said.

According to the police report, detectives were dispatched to the Roy Lester Schneider Regional Medical Center on Thursday August 27 in response to a 13-year-old boy being under observation for a sexual assault.

The boy reported to his parents that he had had sexual intercourse with an adult male that very same day in the Estate Bovoni area at about 6:30 p.m., police said.

He was also able to give detectives a description of the suspect and his name, according to police.
Based on the information supplied to police, Carmona Ortiz was easily located and he also provided investigators with a statement.

Carmona Ortiz freely admitted to police that he had performed oral sex on the boy and allowed the minor to do the same to him, the VIPD said.

Bail for Carmona Ortiz was set at $175,000.00. Unable to post bail, was remanded to the Bureau of Corrections pending an Advice of Rights hearing.
