Sex crime suspect apprehended

By 67AM KPUA News

A 33-year-old man wanted for the June, 2008 sexual assault of a female minor in Hawaiian Paradise Park is now in police custody. Mauro Martin Ortiz, a former Puna resident, was brought back to Hilo from Mexico by U.S. Marshals and arrested last Thursday on a bench warrant charging him with kidnapping, seven counts of first-degree sexual assault and five counts of third degree sexual assault. Bail was set at $1 million.

A jury indicted Ortiz in July, 2008 but police were unable to locate him. They later issued several new releases seeking information on his whereabouts and featured his case for five months on the public television show Hawai`i Islands Most Wanted.
