A Port St. Lucie man was being held without bond at the St. Lucie County Jail on Thursday after he allegedly raped and fondled a 9-year-old girl in 2010.
Blas Garcia, 45, who lives in the 600 block of Southeast Tanner Avenue, was served Wednesday with warrants charging him with sexual battery on a child under the age of 12 and lewd and lascivious molestation of a person under the age of 12, records show.
The girl told her grandmother in September 2010 about the repeated attacks and the warrants were obtained in January 2011, but Port St. Lucie police were unable to find Garcia at that time, according to a warrant affidavit.
