KISSIMMEE — Kissimmee police detectives are asking for the public’s help in finding a man wanted in a case involving the sexual battery of a teenage girl.
The Kissimmee Police Department just issued an alert asking that anyone with information about 21-year-old Alejandro Martinez-Rosario contact their Major Crimes Unit at 407-846-3333, or by e-mail at seeitsayit@kissimmee.org.
Detectives say Martinez-Rosario is wanted for questioning, because the suspect was involved in what Stacie Miller, media and public relations officer for the Kissimmee Police Department, described in an email as “a lewd and lascivious battery on a minor.”
Miller noted that the department first learned of the allegations on May 13. The department was told that the sexual assault happened on Feb. 14 at the Budgetel Inn at 4104 W. Vine St. in Kissimmee.
“Through the course of the investigation, detectives determined that Alejandro Martinez-Rosario committed a lewd and lascivious act upon a 15-year-old female acquaintance,” Miller wrote in her report.
Detectives made an effort to locate the suspect — unsuccessfully, Miller wrote.
“Alejandro was given several opportunities to discuss his involvement with detectives, but he has not come forward,” she noted.
Detectives got an arrest warrant on June 8, charging Martinez-Rosario with lewd and lascivious battery, and they are now asking anyone with information on his whereabouts to call the department or Central Florida Crimeline at 1-800-423-TIPS (8477).
Calls that are made to Crimeline will remain anonymous, while tips that lead to a felony arrest will be eligible for cash rewards of up to $1,000.
