The 6-year-old girl knew the maintenance man as “Nate.” Deputies say he raped her while her grandmother slept.
Nathan Valentin was arrested Wednesday and charged with two counts of sexually assaulting a victim under 12. Broward Sheriff’s Office deputies said the 27-year-old man allegedly raped the child in December of 2015 while her grandmother was home. According to the police, the 6-year-old was able to tell the difference between a truth and a lie, as well as point out her private parts.
Deputies say the 6-year-old told them that Valentin forced her to perform oral sex on him, kissed her and “licked her ‘private,’” pointing toward her “vaginal area,’’ according to the police report.
Valentin, who is from Hollywood, has tattoos on both of his arms and a “Lucifer’’ chest tattoo.
