ELYRIA — A man who allegedly sexually assaulted his 9-year-old neighbor was charged with the incident on Wednesday.
William Ramos, 44, was charged with gross sexual imposition about 7 p.m. Wednesday after his neighbors told police he molested their daughter.
According to police, Ramos’s 9-year-old neighbor came over his house in the 200 block of Park Meadow Drive on June 11 to play with Ramos’s children. Ramos molested the girl while she was on the play-date at his house, said Elyria Police Capt. Chris Costantino.
The girl told her parents, who reported the incident to police the same day, Costantino said. After an investigation, officers took Ramos into custody. There was no reason to believe Ramos’ own children were in danger, Costantino said.
Ramos was taken to Lorain County Jail where he was held on a $125,000 bond Thursday.
