A 38-year-old Ocala man was arrested Aug. 15 on three charges relating to sexual activity with a victim under 12 years old.

Rogelio Argote Munoz was arrested at his home by the Marion County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO) in the Golden Hills Mobile Home Park, located in the west Ocala area off West Highway 40.

According to a MCSO report, an investigation revealed Munoz lured a juvenile victim to his home and into his bedroom to feed baby chickens. He then allegedly exposed himself and rubbed himself against the victim and proceeded to molest and sexually batter the child.

The victim said similar incidents had occurred previously and that Munoz claimed to have performed sexual acts with other children.

MCSO believes Munoz may have victimized other children and is asking anyone to report any information they might have on sexual abuse perported by Munoz to Detective Hartigan at 352-368-3535.
