The Broward Sheriff's Office arrested 17-year-old Rumaldo Frometa in the sexual assault of the 9 year-old boy at Sunview Park in fort Lauderdale. Frometa raped the boy in a portable bathroom while the boy's 7 year-old sister waited outside.
Frometa gained the children's trust by impersonating a police officer. Other neighborhood children helped police in apprehending him. He will be charged with capital sexual battery, kidnapping and falsely impersonating a police officer.
Prayerfully, the boy and his family will recive counseling to help them deal with this horrific situation. It's been reported that Frometa committed a similar crime last year. He needs help too.
Although Frometa is a juvenile, he could be tried as an adult. Stay tuned.
