A months-long investigation into alleged sexual battery assaults ended with the apprehension of the 49-year-old suspect, who was found living in St. Augustine.
Allen Anthony Feliciano, whose address was still listed in Inverness, was arrested April 20 in St. John’s County on a Citrus County warrant on charges of sexual battery on a person under 18 and lewd and lascivious molestation on a person under 12. Feliciano was transported to Citrus County, where he was booked into the Citrus County Detention Facility on April 21. No bond was set.
According to the documents, Citrus County Sheriff’s Detective Anthony Ricci met with a 28-year-old female Aug. 11, 2020. She told investigators that past sexual abuse occurred when she was between the ages of 6 years old to 12 years old. The female told the detective the abuse occurred at night at a residence in Citrus County. She alleged Feliciano touched her inappropriately.
Prior to meeting with law enforcement authorities, she confronted Feliciano about the abuse. The female said he admitted to it, the report stated. During the investigation, an additional female came forward and told authorities Feliciano touched her inappropriately and disclosed sexual acts committed by Feliciano.
According to the report, the second woman, a 45-year-old, said the incidents occurred when she was between 9 years old and 12 years old and Feliciano was 16. She told the detective she told him to stop, which he did for a short while. However, he allegedly forced himself on her again soon thereafter.
A third person, a 29-year-old woman, the report stated, told authorities she was between 5 and 8 years old when Feliciano touched her inappropriately as well as kissed her.
After the women confronted Feliciano about the abuse, he quit his job and relocated, the report stated.
