A soccer coach in Maryland who is accused of sexually assaulting a seven-year old girl was detained by Immigration and Customs Enforcement on Thursday.
Miguel Alfredo-Flores, 47, originally from El Salvador, was arrested Wednesday in Montgomery County, Maryland after a police investigation determined that in 2015 he had inappropriately touched a seven-year old girl.
The victim, now 9 years old, told police that the alleged incidents in 2015 took place during soccer practice at the Centerway Park soccer field in Montgomery Village while other team members were running laps.
Flores coaches and owns the Academia de Futbol Salvadorena, but that organization is not connected with Montgomery County Public Schools.
According to the arrest report, the victim told police that Flores would “do weird movements and it didn’t make her feel comfortable.” She said that on multiple occasions, Flores put his hands around her and underneath her shirt and warned her not to tell anyone, threatening to “do something” if she did.
Detectives think the Salvadoran immigrant may have sexually assaulted other girls as well. The immigration detainer denotes that Flores should be deported.
Anyone with information regarding inappropriate contact involving Flores should contact the Special Victims Investigations Division at 240-773-5400.
In another recent incident, an illegal alien from Mexico was recently jailed on allegations of sexually molesting a teenage girl in Philadelphia, who was a player on a soccer team where he worked as a volunteer coach.
