Kendall, FL– A 27-year-old man is now facing sexual assault charges after he allegedly had an inappropriate relationship with a teen.
Investigators say Angel Diaz and the teen met at the Kendall Ice Arena back in September 2020.
The teen told investigators that she was just 13 at the time, however, she and Diaz exchanged numbers and began meeting regularly.
Over the course of their encounters, the teen told authorities that they kissed, Diaz fondled her, and they also had intercourse in a small room at the arena.
When authorities confronted Diaz with the information, Diaz denied having a relationship with the teen.
Diaz was arrested and has been charged with lewd and lascivious battery on a child under the age of 16, molestation of a child under the age of 16, and lewd and lascivious conduct.
He has since posted his $22,500 bond.
