If the allegations against 18-year-old Luis Arevelo are true, there's not a circle in Hell that he's worthy of being banished to.
According to police, Arevelo sexually assaulted a 5-year-old relative several months ago.
When the girl's mother took the child to the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia yesterday, CHOP doctors quickly called police after realizing the little girl had chlamydia, a sexually transmitted disease, said Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood.
Even worse, the girl's mother allegedly admitted to police that the helpless child had previously told her that Arevelo "'stuck his pee pee in her pee pee,'" Chitwood said.
"He denies the rape," Chitwood said. "But 5-year-olds don't get sexually transmitted diseases and he does have an STD."
Arevelo, who is just legally out of childhood himself, was charged with rape of a child, indecent sexual assault and related offenses. He was arraigned this morning and sent to the Delaware County Prison. His bail was set at $250,000, police said.
Arevelo is an Ecuadorian native who legally resides in Upper Darby and U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement has put a detainer on him, Chitwood said.
