Dad looking for daughter, 13, finds her in car with half-undressed man in Indian River County

Christopher Torres facing charges

INDIAN RIVER COUNTY — A father and his two sons found a Port St. Lucie man literally with his pants down in a car with the father's teenage daughter early Monday, according to the Indian River County Sheriff's Office.

The sons roughed up Christopher Torres, 18, of the 800 block of Southwest Java Avenue, Port St. Lucie, and held him until deputies arrived. The girl is 13 years old and told a detective she and Torres had met just hours earlier and had sex, his affidavit states.

Torres, who was charged with lewd and lascivious battery, told a detective he contacted the girl on Facebook about noon Sunday. They made plans to meet about 2 a.m. Monday, according to his affidavit. The girl told a detective she lied about her age and told Torres she was 16, the affidavit states.

Torres picked up the girl and they parked off an unspecified roadway, the affidavit states. The girl's father and her brothers found the pair about 3:45 a.m.

Torres remained at the Indian River County Jail in lieu of $5,000 bail Tuesday.
