An East Naples man is accused of sneaking into his girlfriend’s daughter’s room on several occasions and molesting her.
Enmanuel Alexander Valerio, 29, of the 6400 block of College Park Circle, was arrested Wednesday by Collier County sheriff’s deputies on three counts of lewd and lascivious molestation of a minor under the age of 12.
The victim told deputies that many times Valerio would sneak into her room in the middle of the night and touch her on the inside of her pants while she pretended to be asleep, according to reports. The victim also told deputies that Valerio had grabbed her backside once while she was in the kitchen and again while she was walking up the stairs.
The victim told her mother about the alleged abuse after she said Valerio upset her for accusing her of having inappropriate conversations with her friend through text messages, reports said.
During an interview, the young girl’s mother told deputies that she and Valerio have been together since 2005 but she kicked him out of the house as soon as she found out what he had been doing, reports said.
Due to previous arrests and the severity of the crimes, Valerio’s bond was set at $150,000 for each charge to ensure the safety of the victim and her mother.
