JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Police say a Mexican immigrant is accused of raping a 15-year-old minor while she was babysitting two infants on Saturday night.

Fernando Huerara-Ortega, 33, of Jonesboro was charged with rape after the 15-year-old informed police of the incident which occurred in an apartment complex near the corner of Rains and Oak Street.

The girl informed officers that she was babysitting two infants while their mother was at work when the incident occurred.

Huerara-Ortega's bond is set at $100,000.

According to the detective, the high bond is due to Ortega having no relatives in the U.S. and no information on file in the National Crime Information Center data base. He is considered a high flight risk.
