PEMBROKE PINES, Fla. (WSVN) – A Pembroke Pines man was arrested and charged with sexual abuse of a minor, online solicitation of illicit sexual conduct with a child and traveling to meet a minor, according to Pembroke Pines police.

Saul Alfonso Silva Valecillos, 39, was taken into custody on July 8 after attempting to meet the juvenile victim for a sexual encounter at a mall. The arrest followed an investigation into an incident that occurred on June 30 at Silva Valecillos’ residence at 15650 SW 12th St.

According to a police report, the juvenile victim attended a party at Silva Valecillo’s home. During the event, the victim drank alcohol and went to a bedroom to sleep.

“Shortly thereafter, Silva Valecillos entered the bedroom and performed oral sex on the minor victim without her consent,” a press release states. “When the minor victim realized what was happening, she resisted Valecillos, pushed herself out of the room and immediately left the apartment. After the minor victim reported the incident to her parents, they contacted the police.”

Further investigation revealed that Silva Valecillos had communicated with the victim after the incident, asking for sexually explicit photographs and arranging another meeting.

“Silva Valecillos drove to a shopping center where he believed he was going to meet the juvenile victim, but was instead taken into custody,” investigators said in the press release.

Investigators have found no evidence of further inappropriate contact between Silva Valecillos and other children. However, any parent or guardian who believes their child may have encountered Silva Valecillos is asked to contact Detective Ralph Rienzo of the Special Victims Unit at [email protected] or 954-743-1616.

The investigations are still ongoing.
