A Bluffton man accused of sexually assaulting a minor under 11 years old faces a felony charge after the child reported the incident to a teacher earlier this month, according to the Bluffton Police Department.
Flavio Montano-Osinaga, 20, was charged with first-degree criminal sexual conduct with a minor, court records show.
The minor reported the abuse to a teacher on Thursday and said it had happened about a month before, according to Sgt. Bonifacio Perez, a spokesperson with the Bluffton Police Department. Montano-Osinaga was identified by the minor as the alleged abuser and was taken to the Beaufort County Detention Center Thursday night.
No other charges are expected at this time and the investigation is ongoing.
Attorney information for Montano-Osinaga was not immediately available. As of Sunday, he remained in custody at the detention center in Beaufort.
