A Bradenton resident was arrested Wednesday on multiple charges that he raped a girl, the sheriff’s office reports.
Benjamin Rodriguez, 31, reportedly supplied the victim with beer and marijuana in March and preceded to rape her while she was sleeping.
The victim, whose age has not been released, pushed him off on the first incident. A few days later Rodriguez repeated those actions on the girl, the report said.
The victim, originally from New York, reported Rodriguez to Middletown Police Department in New York, upon returning there.
Rodriguez has been charged with two counts of sexual offense with a victim 12 to 15 years of age.
He is currently being held in Manatee County jail on a $20,000 bond.
