PORTLAND, Ore. (WGHP) -- A 21-year-old man is accused of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old girl repeatedly after moving into her room for a month – hiding under the bed and in the closet so her grandfather wouldn’t find him, prosecutors say.
Zacharias Adrian Cavasos was charged in U.S. District Court in Portland with sexual abuse of a minor, The Oregonian reports.
Cavasos, who allegedly traveled from Washington state to the girl’s family home on the Umatilla Indian Reservation in Oregon, met her via social media in December.
Prosecutors say Cavasos used Snapchat, Facebook, Instagram and texts to message the girl, ultimately convincing her in early February to meet him at the Wildhorse Resort and Casino.
Cavasos allegedly slipped into her room on Feb. 10 and stayed there undetected for two weeks.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Jennifer Martin said Cavasos took slats out from under the girl’s bed so he could hide beneath it, according to the paper.
Prosecutors say her grandfather saw him on Feb. 25 and ordered him to leave, but Cavasos returned later and hid out until March 11.
Cavasos later admitted to investigators that he had sex with the 12-year-old on multiple occasions, court documents say.
