Fairfax County Police are asking for help in their search for a 48-year-old Springfield-area resident who is wanted for a charge of sexual battery of a juvenile.
Ricardo Delgado-Tobar, of Abilene Street, fled from the area after being contacted during the course of the investigation, police said in a news release. Detectives do not know if he is still in the area or, possibly, outside of the United States.
Police said they were called by a Fairfax County high school guidance counselor in February 2014 after a 15-year-old girl had shared information about being sexually assaulted by the suspect numerous times. The victim and suspect are known to each other.
Police remind residents that it is illegal to assist a fugitive from justice by providing money or other resources to them.
Fairfax County Police are working with the United States Marshall’s Fugitive Task Force on this case.
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Delgado-Tobar is asked to contact Detective Les Anderson at 703-246-7800 or Crime Solvers by phone at 1-866-411-TIPS/8477, e-mail at http://www.fairfaxcrimesolvers.org.
