Wednesday, October 2, 2013 - 12:16pm

El Paso Police Department's Crimes Against Children unit have arrested a man who allegedly assaulted a 14-yr-old girl in a West El Paso model room.

According to EPPD officials the incident occurred at the Mesa Inn, along the 4100 block of North Mesa, on September 24, 2013.

During the investigation, detectives discovered that 51-year-old Jorge Luis Villafuerte rented a room at the Mesa Inn around 10:30 a.m. and checked out at 3:52 p.m. 

Officials say that during that time, investigators believe that Villafuerte had sexual intercourse with a teen girl, inside the room. Detectives obtained an arrest warrant for Villafuerte and placed him under arrest.

Villafuerte was booked into the El Paso County Detention Facility on the charge of Sexual Assault of a Child early Tuesday morning. His bond was set at $150,000.00.

Investigators add that they requested a news release on this case due to the fact that Villafuerte was employed by Child Protective Services as a Case Worker when this assault occurred.

Investigators believe that there could be additional victims that have not been identified.

Anyone with information on additional cases is asked to contact police at 915-832-4400.
