Man Charged with Assault Two Decades Later
FERGUSON (AP) - Twenty years after a woman was sexually assaulted in St. Louis County, charges have been filed in the case.
KMOV-TV reports that 62-year-old Pedro Castillo is charged with one count of sodomy.
Ferguson police say a 12-year-old girl was attending a sleepover at a friend's home in 1993. The victim told police that Castillo molested her in the middle of the night.
Police say Castillo left the St. Louis area, with relatives believing he went to Mexico. But police say that in August a relative of the victim was at a Mexican restaurant and saw Castillo playing in a Mariachi band. He was arrested earlier this month.
A message left Wednesday with Castillo's attorney was not immediately returned.
