Davie police said that they have arrested 46-year-old Rodman Rivera Chirinos, after being accused of sexually assaulting the teenage girl after offering her a ride to school.

Chirinos was charged with two counts of lewd or lascivious molestation of a child older than 12 but under 16 years of age and lewd and lascivious exhibition.

He was booked into the Broward Main Jail, and his bail was set at $75,000.

According to the police investigation, the girl knew Chirinos through her church, and she stated that she knew the suspect for five years.

The incident began around 8:30 a.m. on Tuesday. Chirinos approached the girl, who was waiting at her school bus stop.

He offered a ride, but she refused. The girl walked to another bus stop, where Chirinos again offered her a ride, and she agreed.

Chirinos took her to the church parking lot in the 12900 block of State Road 84. He closed the doors of the car and began to touch her chest.

The girl tried to escape, but Chirinos grabbed her and began kissing her. Chirinos then took off the girl’s pants and touched her private parts.

He then took her back to the bus stop.
