A Roswell man was arrested Friday, suspected of 10 counts of sexual contact with a child.
Police arrested Uriel “Rudy” Guajardo, 50, at 9 a.m. in a parking lot on the 2300 block of North Main Street.
The incidents involved three female children and had occurred during the past year in Roswell, according to Roswell Police Department spokeswoman Sabrina Morales.
“The children spoke with their mother,” Morales said. “That’s when officers got involved.”
Guajardo is charged with seven counts of criminal sexual contact of a minor age 13 – 18 years of age, with force, two counts of criminal sexual contact of a minor (a child under 13 years old, to the unclothed intimate parts), and one count of criminal sexual contact of a minor (a child under 13 years of age and clothed), Morales said.
During the investigation, detectives found sufficient probable cause and secured an arrest warrant for Guajardo, Morales said.
Guajardo was taken to the Chaves County Detention Center, where he was held on a $100,000 bond.
