PALM COAST, FLORIDA: The reports say a man accused of sexually abusing a 15-year-old girl.

According to the Flagler County Sheriff’s Office, 34 year old Gaston Santos Jr. was arrested on a charge of lewd and lascivious battery on a child.

Santos confessed to having sex with the victim. Santos said he knew the victim was underage.

Officials interrogated Santos and found out he manipulated the girl. Santos made the girl believe they were in a relationship. Also, Santos convinced the underaged victim to lie about his age.

“This is a sick and twisted individual who preyed on a young child and tricked her into an adult relationship,” Sheriff Rick Staly said. “Thankfully someone came forward to alert us and our detectives worked quickly to make an arrest. We hope that the victim gets the help she needs to recover.”

However, further investigation is still ongoing.
