RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- Truckee Police Detectives arrested a 24-year-old man for unlawful sex with a minor on Tuesday. The victim's parents originally contacted Truckee PD to report a relationship between the victim and suspect, who lives in Kings Beach. The parents broke-up the relationship and asked Truckee PD to investigate.
Detectives interviewed all the parties and determined the relationship was consensual, but the suspect -- Erwin Bosbeli Cifuentes-Perez --was several years older than the victim, making the sexual relationship illegal. Cifuentes-Perez was aware of the age difference and admitted to knowing it was unlawful for him to engage in sex with the victim. He was arrested and booked into Nevada County Jail for unlawful sexual intercourse with a minor.
According to a Truckee Police press release, TPD takes reports such as these very seriously. TPD also said victims in these cases, even where the situation is consensual, are often afraid to speak out. Victims may contact Truckee Police or Tahoe Safe Alliance to report the situation confidentially and to seek advice.
