We applaud Florida law enforcement officials for arresting Pastor Angel Perez after the Kissimmee police department received a complaint that Perez had engaged in sexual acts with a 16 year old boy.
Children are better protected with officials act quickly and effectively to apprehend credibly accused child molesters.
We admire the courage it took for the 16 year old boy to come forward with his abuse, even after his mother asked him to lie so DCF would not be notified.
Perez was the pastor at Templo Pentecostal Puerto De Salvation and according to the police report engaged in sexual acts with the victim while he slept. Perez later apologized to the victim and claimed he was possessed by the devil.
SNAP wants to encourage anyone who suffered, saw or heard something about Perez to report it to Kissimmee Police Department’s Major Crimes Unit at 407-846-3333.
