Girl claims she was groped at church party

| October 2, 2011

PROVO, UT (ABC 4 News) – One man is behind bars and police are interviewing a bishop after a girl claims she was groped. The incident allegedly happened at an LDS church party at a park in Provo.

It all started when a teenage girl did not want to be part of a water fight at the event. A man apparently dumped a bucket of water on her, and then proceeded to pull her in and sexually assault her.

“For her she came forward because the suspect continued to follow her and stalk her, which scared her even more,” said Provo Police spokesperson, Mathew Siufanua.

The 13-year-old victim claims her aggressor is 30-year-old Jose Luis Ortega. The incident happened in August, but it was just reported a few days ago. “There is an allegation that she went to the bishop, however, that's something we are working on with our investigation,” he added.
