Man Accused of Raping 9-Year-Old Oregon Girl Was Deported Back to Mexico in 2001


A Mexican national who was already deported once before has been accused of the sexual assault of a 9-year-old girl in Oregon.

Police are searching for 48-year-old Santiago Martinez-Flores, whom they allege crept into a home in Clackamas County on February 26 and assaulted a child while she slept, according to the New York Daily News.

The Clackamas Sheriff’s Office reports that Martinez-Flores has been known to use the aliases “Felipe Coeto” and “Isidro Ramos Flores.”

The suspect has a criminal record in the U.S. going back to 1994. Records also show he was deported back to Mexico in 2001 after serving a two-year prison sentence.

The victim’s family told police that an intruder broke into the child’s bedroom through a window and attacked the child in a room she shares with her 5-year-old sister.

When the children screamed, the invader jumped back out the same window he used to get inside the apartment.

The girl’s description of her attacker matched that of Martinez-Flores.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of the suspect should call the Clackamas Sheriff’s Office at (503) 655-8211 or the Tip Line at (503) 723-4949. There is also an online tip report at the department’s webpage.
