Rape suspect in jail for attacks on 12-year-old girl

Posted: Updated:

ESCONDIDO (CNS) - An 18-year-old man who has been living in Escondido illegally was in custody Friday on suspicion of repeatedly raping and molesting a 12-year-old girl, police said.

Jose Manuel Ayala was arrested in the 500 block of North Fig Street about 4:45 p.m. Thursday, Escondido police Lt. Craig Carter said in a statement. Prior to his arrest, Ayala was in the process of being deported, according to Carter.

The victim first told police she was raped in September but, questioned further, revealed she had been raped and otherwise molested several times during a three-month period, the lieutenant said.

It was unclear how she knew Ayala.

Ayala was booked into the Vista jail on suspicion of nine counts of child molestation, six counts of child molestation by force or fear, one count of sexual battery, three counts of rape, two counts of false imprisonment, three counts of unlawful sex with a minor and five counts of residential burglary.

An immigration hold was placed on Ayala, making him ineligible for bail, Carter said.
