A Guatemalan national accused of raping a minor has disappeared after being allowed to post bail.
Gabino Vargas-Perez, a 20-year-old legal resident whose parents live in Guatemala, allegedly raped a 14-year-old girl whom he was dating after stalking her for months at Central High School, according to KETV News
The victim’s aunt told KETV that the teen reported the stalking to school officials but nothing was done. The administration says they have no records of the reports.
After Vargas-Perez and the victim began dating, he took the teen to his home to meet his family. The girl alleges that Vargas-Perez took her upstairs and raped her after she repeatedly told him she did not want to have sex.
When charges were filed against Vargas-Perez in December 2016, he was allowed to post a $5,000 bail from jail. Vargas-Perez paid the bond and then disappeared.
