A Spanish-speaking creep in North Carolina used the Google Translate app on his cellphone to tell a 15-year-old girl he just raped that she was pretty, according to reports.
Victor Emandes-Ramirez, 33, is accused of kidnapping and sexually assaulting the teen as she walked to a bus stop early Thursday in Wake County, the News & Observer reported.
After grabbing the girl, Emandes-Ramirez, of Zebulon, allegedly forced the victim into his car before taking her to shed behind a mobile home, where he forced her to perform sex acts, according to a search warrant application.
Emandes-Ramirez, who doesn’t speak English, then drove the teen back to school – and used Google Translate to tell her that she was attractive and ask that she not tell anyone what just happened, according to the warrant.
He was arrested later Thursday after his Hyundai Sonata was caught on surveillance footage at the teen’s school, police said.
Emandes-Ramirez — who has been charged with first-degree kidnapping, statutory rape of a child and statutory sex offense with a child – remained jailed in Wake County in lieu of $1 million bond as of Wednesday. He’s set to return to court on Jan. 30, records show.
The teen, meanwhile, told investigators that a man named “Victor” had attacked her while on her way a Wake County high school, WNCN reported.
The suspect at the time was wearing pants with white paint on them, the victim told police.
Ramirez used his cellphone to translate Spanish into English, WTVD reported.
A message seeking comment from Google reps was not immediately returned.
The teen’s father, meanwhile, said he hopes the suspect is targeted by other inmates while in custody.
“It could have gone a lot of different ways, but luckily, the sheriff got him before I did,” he told WRAL. “I hope he gets life in prison, and I hope he gets tortured every day of his life.”
The man rushed to his daughter’s school after getting a call about the sickening attack, he said.
“It was one of the worst phone calls you could ever get and one of the hardest things to deal with,” the girls’ father told the station. “We’re going to get through it. It’s just tough, it really is, but my main goal is to try to make her better.”
